Charity at the Royal West of England Academy

June 28, 2011 by Kay

The Royal West of England Academy currently has Charity, Damien Hirst’s twenty-two foot high painted bronze statue, on the balcony over their front entrance.

The sculpture is a Spastics Society collection box of a young girl clutching a teddy bear with her leg in callipers. The charity box is depicted as having been broken into, with a large crow bar and coins scattered on the pavement below.

Visit Charity at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol until May 2012.
