LOCATION: Cini Foundation - San Giorgio Island
Marc Quinn is the exclusive star of the exhibition open to the public at the Giorgio Cini Foundation from 29 May 2013.
The “Marc Quinn” personal exhibition of works by the great and arguably best known exponent of the generation of Young British Artists is one of the most important shows dedicated to him with more than 50 works on display, including sculptures, paintings, sketches and other objets d'art, 13 of which have never been viewed before.
In the outdoor exhibition space, arranged by Germano Celant and designed especially for the island of San Giorgio, you can also admire a tribute to nature which sees art as an element that is both intrinsic and mysterious: the seven giant shells in The Archaeology of Art series are perfectly symmetrical shapes formed of miniature creatures without brains which appear to follow an order apparently far greater than themselves. Lastly, from the basin of San Marco, you can see the large sculpture Alison Lapper Pregnant (2005).
Opening hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day
