The Littoral Zone picture
Overview:

‘The Littoral Zone’ exhibition includes sculptures, paintings and installations by the artist which will be shown throughout the museum, alongside its collection of marine specimens and underwater fauna, setting up a fascinating dialogue between art and science.

Over 60 works by Marc Quinn will be shown both inside and outside the museum including new works such as the ‘The Origin of the World (Cassis madagascariensis) Indian Ocean, 310’, a huge three meter bronze shell, new underwater paintings from the series ‘The Zone’ and the unveiling of the latest version of Marc Quinn's Self sculptures, ‘Self’ 2011.

Other pieces in the show include ‘Planet’, a 10 metre bronze baby and a series of burning sculptures, which thanks to new technology, can burn with real fire inside the museum without a flue. The relationship between art and science is explored both in the museum collection and the artist's work.
