Theories, Models, Methods, Approaches, Assumptions, Results and Findings was published to coincide with the exhibition of the same title at Gagosian Gallery, New York, 2000. The limited edition catalogues each have an unique spot drawing bound within the pages of the book. All works exhibited are illustrated and accompanied by excerpts from the Journal of Clinical Forensic Medicine, a text by novelist Gordon Burn, and an essay by Dr George Poste, Chairman of the US Department of Defense Science Board on Bioterrorism.

The publication references the academic scientific research publications that have inspired Hirst’s work since the beginning of his artistic endeavours, placing the sculptures and paintings into what feels like a natural home. The diagram on the cover shows the changes and processes affecting the body after death, and illustrated essay titles include The Epidemiology of Violence and Observations on Fatal Injuries to the Brain Stem and/or Upper Cervical Spinal Cord. These essays, and many more with their accompanying diagrams, tables and pie-charts, bring order and reason to unacceptably difficult events like much of Hirst’s work.

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 recognised as one of the most influential artists of his generation.

Through a varied practise 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 exhibited at Tate Modern, London. He lives in Devon and has studios in Gloucester and London.
