ETERNAL, Damien Hirst x Lalique

Eternal Love, Black and Gold – exhibited at Other Criteria London

Eternal, the collection created by Damien Hirst in collaboration with French historic crystal and glass manufacturer Lalique, takes as its motif the butterfly, which is presented in three series: Love, Hope and Beauty. These exquisite panels express Hirst and René Lalique’s shared sense of the magical and paradoxical beauty of the butterfly, ephemeral and eternal at the same time. Each series of crystal panels is available in 12 different colours in a limited edition of 50 pieces per colour.

"I’ve always loved crystal and it’s both beautiful and difficult to work with, so I’m really excited about the project. It’s amazing being able to use all the expert craftsmanship and incredible history of Lalique for something new, and the results are beyond all my expectations. I love that the panels have an almost religious feel, they make you think of stained glass windows which I’ve always adored, it’s the way they manage to capture colour and light so completely and then throw it back out at you. [...]

I see butterflies as souls and part of a wider visual language. I’ve always described them as universal triggers; everyone loves them because of their incredible abstract fragility and beauty. [...] I’ve always loved that they look identical in life and in death, but when the light shines through these panels, it feels like they’re brought back to life in some way." Damien Hirst, 2014

The Eternal collection is exhibited at Other Criteria London and New York, and online here.
