Hear sculptor Marc Quinn discuss how the work of Michelangelo has inspired his own creative practice.


Marc Quinn is a leading British contemporary artist. His works include 'Alison Lapper Pregnant' (2005–2007), a sculpture on Trafalgar Square's Fourth Plinth; 'Evolution' (2005), comprising nine large sculptural components and one rock of unhewn marble (pictured) which reference Michelangelo's unfinished sculpture, 'Dying Slave' (1513–16, now in the Louvre);  and 'Self', a sculpture of Quinn's head, made with his own frozen blood (an ongoing project, first made in 1991). Quinn's work frequently connects in a meaningful way with art history, from antiquity to modern masters.
