Marc Quinn: Wilder Shores of Desire

YSP Centre

Quinn’s work explores the relationship between art, nature and science, the human body and the perception of beauty. 

Wilder Shores of Desire, an enlarged orchid created using 3D scanning technology, illustrates Quinn’s interest in humankind’s increasingly one-sided relationship to nature, in which human desire attempts to manipulate nature to its own ends.

Appropriately, in the context of YSP, Wilder Shores of Desire is sited in a man-made landscape that was conceived as a pleasure ground in the 18th century, overlooking an exotic vista of imported plants and trees.
