The Warrior and the Bear
The Warrior and the Bear

Considered Damien Hirst’s most complex project to date, the 189 works of Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable took almost 10 years to create. The coral-encrusted The Warrior and the Bear sculpture is one of several large-scale artworks created for the exhibition, measuring over 7 metres tall and made entirely out of bronze. The design and intricate detailing of the artworks required a team of specialist fabricators across the world. A 90 minute documentary-style film was released to chronicle the narrative of the exhibition.

Ardath
Ardath

The spectacular, large-scale glass artwork Ardath features a 42-square-metre wall of mouth-blown glass and is the centerpiece of Brian Clarke's exhibition A Great Light. This installation, an expansive field of flowering meadow motifs in etched glass, bathes the gallery in light and colour. The exhibition presents the artist’s unmatched contribution to the continuous development of the stained glass medium.

Gone But Not Forgotten

The striking installation of Gone But Not Forgotten features a ten-thousand-year-old woolly mammoth skeleton, gilded in 24-carat gold leaf and encased in a gold-framed tank. The work raised $11 million for charity and remains one of Damien Hirst's most popular works on Instagram due to its public installation at the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach.

The Severed Head of Medusa

Exceptional in scale and scope, the Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable exhibition challenged the boundaries of the materials, production techniques, and installation methods used. Visitors of the Palazzo Grassi in Venice were greeted by the 60-foot Demon with Bowl sculpture, which was re-cast in resin just for this installation. The Severed Head of Medusa is one of the smaller artworks that highlight the wide variety of materials used such as gold, lapis lazuli, agate, black and blue granite, malachite, jade, crystal, platinum, and several types of marble.

Temple

Held in 2021 in St Moritz, Mental Escapology was Damien Hirst’s first public exhibition in Switzerland. It featured over 40 works presented across multiple outdoor and indoor sites. Highlights included two large artworks from the Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable series, including a 12-foot bronze sculpture The Monk positioned in the center of the frozen Lake St Moritz, and the 21-foot bronze artwork Temple towering over the lake’s north bank.

The Lost Path
The Lost Path

In The Lost Path, Shono reminds us that the journey is greater than the destination with a monumental sculptural path made of 65,000 PVC pipes responding to a remote location in Al-Ula in Saudi Arabia. Only partially visible from the main site, Shono lays out a call to adventure and points us towards our personal buried stories. Using plastic pipes, a byproduct of the petroleum industry and a material the artist has been exploring in recent works, Shono repurposes this easily discarded material to draw the single line that forms the basis of this work. He uses the pipes in the desert as one would ink on paper, effectively drawing on site – a sculptural sketch in the desert.

Gradients

Random International explores the human condition in an increasingly mechanised world through different notions of consciousness, perception, and instinct. In this work, a sphere is contained within a gridded structure. As people drive by, the nature of the object gradually appears to change, depending on the position and speed of the moving onlooker, as well as the surrounding meteorological conditions and time of day. From the most dramatic perspectives, the entire sculpture can appear to fade seamlessly from a solid geometrical body into nothing but sky.
