Damien Hirst Self-Portraits At Ordovas Gallery

October 15, 2014 by Samia

'Self' opens at Ordovas gallery on October 14, 2014. The exhibit serves as an investigation of the various interpretations of self portraits by four of the greatest artists of the twentieth century: Francis Bacon, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Pablo Picasso.

'Self' includes a major self-portrait study made in 1901 by Picasso, which has never before been publicly exhibited, and one of the first studies of a single head ever painted by Bacon, which hasn't been shown in London for almost 50 years. Koons' bust from his celebrated 'Made in Heaven' is also on display alongside two Hirst works: 'With Dead Head' (1991), a photographic work showing a teenage Hirst with a severed head, pictured in the Leeds anatomy school he used to visit to make life drawings, and 'Self Portrait R.' (2008), a lightbox and x-ray of the artist's head. Both works are expressions of Hirst's life-long fascination in the attempt to comprehend death in life.
A conversation between Hirst and Koons on the subject is published in the exhibition catalogue.
