We don’t know what the fuck we’re doing. Looks nice, though. That’s the great thing about art at the end of the day, if it looks nice over the sofa, you can get away with it...
Damien Hirst, the most controversial and talked about British artist, who grew up amid the mass-media noise of Young British Art, comes back with a new provocative project on the theme of pharmaceuticals. Taking episodes and characters from the Old and New Testaments as his point of reference, the medicine cabinet, pill painting and Pharmacy artist moulds a new religion in which surgical incisions become stigmata while medicines, multicoloured pills of mysterious composition with exotic names, are the new idols dispensing healing and salvation of the body. Introduced by journalist Sean O’Hagan’s interview with Damien Hirst.
