About the Event

'Light into Life' by Marc Quinn presents 17 stunning stainless steel and bronze sculptures around the Gardens and in the Temperate House alongside a presentation of Quinn’s new and existing paintings, drawings, sculptures and evocative frozen works in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery.

Marc Quinn has long been interested in the links between nature and humanity, and this exhibition brings that complex relationship to life. The mirrored effect of many of the stainless-steel sculptures blurs the boundaries between the viewer, the sculpture and the landscape, giving every visitor a unique experience of the artworks. Their reflection encourages viewers to see themselves as a part of the artwork and a part of the landscape.

Not only are the artworks a feast for the eyes, they also offer a chance to discover more about the many ways that plants form an essential part of human life. Quinn has been working in close collaboration with Kew scientists and horticulturists to explore more about plants and their incredible forms and shapes, using significant plants from across our collections to inspire his work.

NB Entry to Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is not included in the tour price and will need to be booked separately.
