Marc Quinn

07 Dec

Akris SS11Marc Quinn’s exhibition, « Allanah, Buck, Catman, Chelsea, Michael, Pamela and Thomas », presented at London’s White Cube Gallery, from May 6 until June 26, 2010, inspired the prints of the Akris Spring/Summer 2011 Collection.

Some Marc Quinn-inspired items or Marc Quinn’s collaborations : De Beers by Natalia Vodianova (this jewelry line, launched at the end of 2010, was partly inspired by Marc Quinn), Louisa Guinness Gallery (since 2007, the gallery has commissioned Marc Quinn to create jewelry, including « Orchid » earrings and necklaces, and « Frozen Strawberry » pendants), Lucien Pellat-Finet Spring/Summer 2009 (Marc Quinn collaborated on 3 sweaters and one floral-printed blanket, launched in January 2009, inspired by his « Frozen Flowers » work), Selfridges (for Christmas 2011, Marc Quinn created a collaborative collection with Selfridges, featuring white gold jewelry, silk hand-printed scarves, men’s and women’s T-shirts, and temporary tattoos, inspired in part by his « Orchid » signature motif), Versace (in 2008, Donatella Versace commissioned Marc Quinn to design a jewelry piece, for New York’s Whitney Museum gala, on October 20, 2008, to celebrate the launch of Versace’s Fine Jewelry line).

Furthermore, in 2006, Marc Quinn created « Sphinx », a bronze sculpture of Kate Moss in a yoga position, and, in 2008, « Siren », a larger-scale version of this work, cast in gold.
