Damien Hirst's "Visual Candy and Natural History" Exhibition Opens in Hong KongThe artist’s infamous pickled animals arrive at Gagosian Gallery.
English artist Damien Hirst returns to the Gagosian Gallery in Hong Kong, six years after its opening, with his exhibition “Visual Candy and Natural History.” The show features the YBA artist’s works from 1993 and 1994, including his infamous pickled animal sculptures, such as a shark preserved in formaldehyde in a vitrine.
Other pickled animals include sheep, a dove, an oven-ready turkey and two calves named Cain and Abel, while another artwork which consists of a cow’s decapitated head lying in a puddle of blood, adds to the show’s shock value. Also on display is a series of vibrant spot color oil paintings collectively called Visual Candy.
Damien Hirst’s “Visual Candy and Natural History” will be on display at the Gagosian in Hong Kong until January 13, 2018. Let us know if you’re a fan of Hirst in the comments below and for more art content, Daniel Arsham unveiled a limited edition SAND CIRCLE studio device.
