Published on the occasion of Damien Hirst’s 2003 exhibition at White Cube Gallery, London.

The show dissected and recast the story of Jesus and his disciples through paintings and sculptural work while revealing the uncertainty at the heart of human experience. The exhibited works included The Apostles, a series of 13 clinical steel and glass cabinets filled with medical instruments, weapons, ornaments, blood and life’s detritus; a dozen canvases encrusted with flies suspended in resin, each given a fatal disease for a title; skinned cows’ and bulls’ heads in individual tanks punctured, lacerated and stabbed with knives and glass fragments; and huge canvases embedded with butterfly wings arranged in extraordinary grid systems.

This book contains 46 colour illustrations - including many details of the exhibited works – and four gatefolds. An introductory essay by Annushka Shani examines each work more closely, drawing out themes of love, life and death.
