The Complete Medicine Cabinets
Damien Hirst
Other Criteria

Published on the occasion of Damien Hirst’s exhibition at L&M Arts, New York, in October 2010, this first--and complete--book on the artist's medicine cabinets is contextualized by the artist’s following of the punk movement. The first twelve sculptures in the book are named after the title tracks on the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bollocks album. The front-page newspaper spreads punctuating the book from the album’s release year (1977) and the year of the cabinets’ completion (1989) provide a context for reading James Frey’s story-poem, Fuck This and Fuck That, which describes the listless protest of a teenage waster.

More about Damien Hirst
Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965. He first came to public attention in 1988 when he conceived and curated ‘Freeze’, 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 influential artists of his generation. Through a varied practice of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing Hirst has sought to explore the complex relationship between art, life and death. Alongside over 80 solo exhibitions he has worked on numerous curatorial projects. In 2008, Hirst took the unprecedented step of bypassing gallery involvement in selling 244 new works at a Sotheby’s, London auction entitled ‘Beautiful Inside My Head Forever’. Hirst was awarded the Turner Prize in 1995 and his contribution to British art over the last two and a half decades has been acknowledged in a major solo retrospective currently being exhibited at Tate Modern, London. He lives in Devon and has studios in Gloucester and London. For more information on the artist, please visit Text © Damien Hirst & Science Ltd., All rights reserved, 2012
