Marc Quinn ''Self''

Marc Quinn 

In 1991, Quinn started making self-portraits from his own frozen blood. 

Since then he has been making a new one every five year to record the changes of his face throughout the years.

Inspired by Rembrant's self-portraits charting his visage from youth to old age, Quinn has undertaken to produce a new '`Self' every five years

Capri Battery by Joseph Beuys

Details

Beuys created over 200 multiples of “Lemon Light/Capri Battery” in 1985.

I like the idea behind of this work as he uses a bright yellow lemon to contrast the energy and power comes from the sun which is connected with a light bulb. This allowed me to imagine what would be in the light bulb?

 Beuys completed the work on the island of Capri, hence the name, while he was recovering from an illness, and the lemon yellow color reflects this jovial atmosphere and bright Mediterranean.

'Everybody, within the last hour, hour and a half, has shared a common experience that was intensely private.'

So they go from a very private condition to a very public one.

I'm interested in how it affects what happens to you when you leave the museum?how you look at everything else.? I remember seeing several of your photographs in Artforum in 1985 and thinking that they were about finding, framing, pointing. Look at this, and look at this.
