Damien Hirst - Hymn


慔ymn is a 20 foot painted bronze sculpture, that weighs over six tons. The work was originally inspired by an anatomical model belonging to Hirst抯 son, Connor, which the artist describes as: 搄ust so accurate, it was like a chemistry set, and I loved it that it was a toy [...] similar to a medical thing, but much happier, friendlier, more colourful and bright.

Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965. He first came to public attention in 1988 when he conceived and curated 慒reeze, an exhibition of his own work and that of his contemporaries at Goldsmiths college, staged in a disused London warehouse. Since this time Hirst has become widely recognized as one of the most controversial, but also most influential artists of his generation.

His works often shocks the spectators. People hate it or love, but his installation certainly are a reflection of our times.
