Marc Quinn (b.1964)

Template For My Future Plastic Surgery, 2002

Photographic print

1590mm x 500mm

In this work, Quinn explores the relationship between physical appearance and the inner self. This work was made by overlaying a photograph of Quinn, taken by Dan Leppard, with images of casts of alternative body parts. Quinn has selected: the ear of a violinist, the nose of an impresario, the tongue of a noted chef, the hand of Quinn's then-girlfriend, lying over his heart. The brain is depicted by a photograph of a section of coral.
