"Marc Quinn - famous for his sculpture Self, a life cast of the artist's head filled with nine pints of his own frozen blood - is a leading representative of the Young British Artists who have inspired reverence and revulsion worldwide. His first publication, Incarnate, is a comprehensive overview of the sculptural pieces which have established him as one of the most challenging artists of his generation. It contains over 200 full color illustrations of Quinn's work, including Self, Emotional Detox, The Blind Leading the Blind, and Frozen Frog Sculpture, alongside many that have never been seen before. Accompanying the images is a story by the novelist Will Self and essays by the art historian and critic Mark Gisbourne, and by David Thorp, curator of the South London Gallery, as well as a transcript of a conversation between Quinn and the musician Brian Eno. Incarnate is designed by Sean Perkins of North."
