Damien Hirst Relics - English version
"Relics presents the most comprehensive collection of Damien Hirst's work ever assembled. It includes a selection of works from his Natural History series (animals preserved in formaldehyde), spin and spot paintings, medicine cabinets, butterfly works, and the infamous diamond skulls For the Love of God (2007) and For Heaven's Sake (2008). Relics also features Leviathan (2006 - 2013), his largest formaldehyde work to date, consisting of a 6.8 metre basking shark preserved and contained in a 10 metre vitrine, weighing a total of 76 tons. As part of Qatar UK 2013 Year of Culture, Relics spans over twenty-five years of Hirst's artistic career and includes both seminal as well as previously unseen works. Hirst has remained dedicated to exploring the complex relationship between art, love, life and death."
