This summer London became the setting for more than 20 giant sculptures inspired by the DNA double helix, discovered by Francis Crick and James Watson in 1953, and based on the work of Rosalind Franklin. Cancer Research UK asked some of the biggest names in the world of art and design, including Thierry Noir, Aston Martin, Nick Gentry and Andrew Logan, to create unique designs and show the city what's in their DNA.
Each sculpture, measuring 7 feet tall, is a unique work of art. Christie's is proud to auction a selection online, with all proceeds raised from hammer prices going towards the Francis Crick Institute, a new biomedical research centre that will explore the diseases that pose the greatest threat to humanity: cancer, heart disease, respiratory diseases, neurological diseases such as dementia and infectious diseases including HIV and malaria. Cancer Research UK are raising £100 million for the institute to help beat cancer sooner. On behalf of Cancer Research UK, thank you for your support.
