Foetus at London Exhibition

Amy Welbourne says:
Marc Quinn last amazed the public by placing a giant pregnant disabled woman on the Fourth Plinth of Trafalgar Square.
Now he is looking at pregnancy from the inside with nine large sculptures depicting the development of a foetus from 22 days to just before birth.
They have been carved in a pink marble whose mottling conveys the fine veins below the growing child’s skin. They go on display at the White Cube Mason’s Yard gallery, St James’s, tomorrow in Quinn’s first exhibition in the capital since 2005.
