Flowers for Basel and for you.

Marc Quinn (b. 1964) is one of the Young British Artists, a loose group of visual artists who first began exhibiting together in the Freeze exhibition of 1988, curated by Quinn’s former roommate Damien Hirst. Quinn himself did not feature in that first show, but only rose to celebrity in the early 1990s, when he was represented by Jay Jopling and appeared in the 1997 Sensation exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery.

A milestone in Marc Quinn’s career was his self-portrait Self (1991), a sculpture of the artist’s head made of his own frozen blood. Quinn has since produced a new ‘Blood Head’ every five years, each one refrigerated at a constant temperature of -12° C .

The Art Edition Basel Blooms was produced in conjunction with the exhibition of four of Mark Quinn’s Selfs held in the Fondation Beyeler in 2009.
