Kate Moss in Solid Gold

After seeing the latest creation of British artist Marc Quinn, it’s a safe bet that no star will not want to appear at Tussaud or banal Grevin wax statue. London sculptor – has always been fascinated by the phenomenon Kate Moss – has indeed freeze the twig in 50 kg of solid gold…

Already in 2006, his Sphinx representing the young woman in a yogi position had intrigued the press. For the first time, a renowned artist attacked the “concept Kate Moss”, making it into the museum during his lifetime. Called “Sphinx” in honor of the mystery surrounding the personality of the icon Kate, this first painted bronze statue in white was finally – in the light of today – that the introduction of an ambitious project, where Miss Moss is intended to upstage the other Rodin sculptures and overwhelmed by the star system.

The last work of Marc Quinn has been designed to focus the public’s attention, like the euphoria caused by the every move of the twig. It is true that from ancient Egypt, none as large statue had been carved in solid gold … Far to compete for the Guinness Book of Records, Marc Quinn chose the excesses of solid gold, not to raise such and such a challenge, but rather to symbolize the image that Kate Moss has developed over time, and that ended up exceeding it.

The figure, called “Siren” and exposed on September 4 at the British Museum, and is much more an image that a person of flesh and blood. Indeed, if this or that bust of Napoleon reflected the greatness of man argued without the original, this is not the case of the “mermaid” by Marc Quinn, who knowingly overstated the value of the twig. However to believe the artist, this is the purpose of his work: his statue is thus an ode to Kate Moss myth, not the British citizen, despite the fading of his inspiration, still a problem today. ..

The exhibition “Statuephilia” therefore is not to be missed, if only to admire the metamorphosis of a generational idol in a timeless goddess doomed – by Quinn – for eternity…
