Damien Hirst: New Religion


‘Damien Hirst: New Religion’ brings together a body of work from 2005 that illustrates Hirst's enduring concern with belief, mortality, love, seduction and consumption. The exhibition includes a series of silkscreen prints, paintings and sculptural editions that address the artist's belief that “science is the new religion for many people”. Featured in the exhibition will be a crucifix inlaid with pewter pills and silkscreen prints depicting biblical chapters illustrated with pills.Together, the works behave similarly to a painted fresco cycle, moving from the Creation, through the Stations of the Cross, towards the Last Judgment.

Peter Halls introductory tour of the exhibition was a tour de force. A brilliant illumination of how to approach both the exhibition and Hirsts work and lots of interesting background information on how the exhibition was put together.
