n°40 - Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst (born Bristol, England, 1965)
is an internationally renowned artist and the
leading figure of the group that has been dubbed
“Young British Artists” (or YBAs). Death, or the
transience of life, is a central theme in his work.
He is best known for his extraordinary Natural
History series, which includes The Physical
Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone
Living, a 12ft (4 m) tiger shark floating in a glass
tank of formaldehyde.
Yet Hirst also creates works in a brighter vein.
One thinks immediately of his series of “spin
paintings”, made from house paint poured onto a
spinning circular canvas, and The Pharmaceutical
Paintings (commonly referred to as “spot paintings”),
presenting rows of individually coloured circles;
these have been imitated in commercial graphics.
Spots reappear in Hirst’s creation of this issue of
point d’ironie…
– Information, codes, a paint chart, people,
language, beads, plates, eyes, pretty, mathematical,
logos, art, geometry, molecules, spots, dots, planets,
acne, pills, which way up, or down, what size -
big or small, why they exist, what they are trying
to say, why they look good, I don’t know what the
fuck they are.”
