MARC QUINN: FROZEN WAVES BROKEN SUBLIMES - SOMERSET HOUSE (2015)
In the artists own words: ‘Somerset House is a kind of urban beach of the Thames. Built on land which articulates the transition between the urban strand and the water of the river, it is the littoral zone of the city. By placing the cast stainless steel sculptures in the courtyard surrounded by the fountains, the water of the ocean which formed the sculptures’ shapes is linked to the tamed water of pipes, conduits and drains of the city’.
