To celebrate the opening of Tramshed, Damien Hirst has created a new sculpture specifically for the restaurant. 'Cock and Bull' (2012). A Hereford cow and cockerel preserved in a steel and glass tank of formaldehyde – is installed 4 metres above diners. The work forms part of the 'Natural History' series, Hirst's seminal collection of preserved animals.
Alongside Hirst's monumental formaldehyde work, the artist has created a painting entitled 'Beef and Chicken' (2012) specifically for the restaurant. Installed at the mezzanine level, the painting depicts the 1990s cartoon characters 'Cow and Chicken' (Cartoon Network).
