For the love of God, by Damien Hirst

The latest most comprehensive retrospective of Damien Hirst.

Last days to see Damien Hirst’s artwork at Tate Modern in London (Bankside London SE1 9TG, United Kingdom).

From April 4, 2012, Tate Modern in London is presenting the first major Damien Hirst exhibition in the UK with great success.

Damien Hirst (born 7 June 1965) is an English artist, entrepreneur and art collector and the most famous member of the YBAs (Young British Artists). Most of his works can be qualified as “Abject art”, also he is really personal and multifaceted.

Precisely, he started to be known in 1988 in London, with “Freeze”, and exhibition in a disused warehouse with his work and that of his friends and at Goldsmiths College.

The Physical Impossibility of Death..., by Damien Hirst

The Physical Impossibility of Death…, by Damien Hirst

London is again the city that supports his controversial artwork. Tate exhibition has shown iconic sculptures from his “Natural History series”, including “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, 1991” or his diamond-covered skull, “For the Love of God, 2007” (this last display has now ended). But you can still see vitrines such as “A Thousand Years, 1990”, medicine cabinets, pill cabinets, and seminal paintings made throughout his career using butterflies, flies, spots and spins. The two-part installation “In and Out of Love”, not shown in its entirety since its creation in 1991 and “Pharmacy, 1992” are among the highlights of the exhibition.

Enjoy the exhibition, it’s your last chance.

Exhibition end: 9 September 2012.
