Other Criteria are pleased to present the exclusive sale of a limited edition collection of Damien Hirst jewellery. These exquisite pieces incorporate the individually cast forms of perfectly replicated pills, embossed with the logos and compound numbers of the drugs.
The two ‘5 Pill’ and ‘7 Pill’ necklaces are available in rose, white and yellow 18-carat gold, as well as silver.
The charm bracelet, which includes a miniature 18 carat with diamonds skull, in homage to Hirst’s iconic For the Love of God (2007), is rendered in white and yellow gold.
Each piece includes an individual plaque engraved with the artist’s signature and an edition number.
The collection was first produced to coincide with Hirst’s largest retrospective exhibition to date in Qatar, Doha in 2013-2014. Science – and the position of pharmaceuticals in today’s society – remains one of the most enduring and important themes in Hirst’s work. In a 2006 interview he explained: ‘The whole story of science, alchemy and everything; it’s fantastic. Trying to understand the world, looking for the keys to understanding: that’s what artists do as well in some ways. It’s… the forms, the utopia, the hope, the cure.’ Here, the artist continues his investigation of the correlation between science, belief and beauty in spectacular fashion. This extremely limited collection of fine hand made jewellery is a stylish and visually stunning encapsulation of Hirst’s art.
