Marc Quinn at the Oceanographic Museum - Planet
This monumental baby called Planet (painted bronze and steel) waits for you outside the museum.
The exhibition is called 'The Litteral Zone.'
Jerry Brotton wrote 'The litteral zone, where sea meets the shore, where life on earth begins and ends, it is the location of origins, where chaos solidifes into form, where travel starts and concludes, a point of departure and a place of arrival, it is a space of fusion and of separation, where we try - and often fail - to distinguish nature from culture. And as a direct consequence, this is a space where creativity is at its most extreme and profound.'
Here's a timelapse video showing the installation of this 6 tonnes baby:
