Damien Hirst at Frieze 2014

October 16, 2014 by Ishah

Frieze London 15–18 October 2014

Damien Hirst is currently showing the diptych, Because I Can't Have You I Want You in the White Cube stand at Frieze, London this year. Hirst has captured the lives of thirty two different gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals in formaldehyde. The formaldehyde itself is used as much to communicate an idea as to preserve. The solution is extremely toxic despite its innocuous appearance. For Hirst it is associated with fear and memory, or the loss of it. Apparent in Because I Can't Have You I Want You the fish appear to continue to maintain the illusion of their lives underwater, however their eyes and forms reflect an isolated and regimented world. Hirst says, ‘they all face the same way yet they can’t make contact the way they do in the sea […] in life we’re separated by flesh and bones and you can’t really move beyond that’. A theme that is apparent throughout Hirst's collective series of formaldehyde works which brought Hirst to notoriety.

You will find Hirst's Because I Can't Have You I Want You at stand D4 for this year’s Frieze Art Fair.
