Thames River Water

22 Feb 2017 to 13 May 2017

Ivorypress is pleased to present an exhibition and series of artist’s books by British artist Marc Quinn this spring. The exhibition, Thames River Water, draws from the artist’s exploration of the human relationship with nature.

The artists’ books, entitled Thames River Water Atlas and individually created by Quinn for Ivorypress, are sculptural objects. Unfurled as a freestanding screen, each book stands approximately four metres long; equally, when contracted, it can be viewed as a concertinaed book. Each of the four books is unique and originates from the artist’s recent bodies of work The Toxic Sublime and River Paintings. Alongside the books, paintings from both series will be presented, as well as two sculptures from the Frozen Wave series.

Marc Quinn (London, UK, 1964) is considered one of the leading artists of his generation. Quinn first came to prominence in the early 1990s, when he and several peers redefined what it was to make and experience contemporary art.
