NSFW: Here’s Natalie White Posing Nude Inside a Marc Quinn Sculpture at Mary Boone

Yesterday afternoon a few some all of ARTINFO‘s staff hustled over to Mary Boone Gallery‘ after receiving a tip that Natalie White — she of the recent controversy on the Lower East Side involving an exhibition at ROX gallery, where she led the NYPD on a topless tour — was posing nude inside one of the giant shell sculptures from Marc Quinn‘s new show.

Sure enough, White was on the scene and very much out of her shell, sitting, standing, and crawling inside the enormous bronze sculptures in a series of poses evocative of Botticelli‘s “Birth of Venus.” Quinn was also in attendance and didn’t seem to mind the use to which White was putting his sculptures — in fact he, like everyone else on hand, was busy taking pictures. We just hope Andrea Peyser never sees them.
