Anatomy of an Angel by Damien Hirst

June 17, 2015 by Mary

Ekebergparken – a public sculpture and cultural heritage park in Oslo, recently acquired ‘Anatomy of an Angel’ (2008), the first ever Carrara marble sculpture produced by Damien Hirst.

Inaugurated in 2013, the 64-acre sculpture park offers a stunning view of Oslo's magnificient harbor, the sleek opera house, the Nobel Peace Prize building, and the Renzo Piano-designed Astrup Fearnley Museum. Ekebergparken is a historic site that combines modern art with remains from the Stone, Bronze, and Viking ages. The 31 sculptures are of high quality and are representative of European art history of the last 130 years. The combination of Ekeberg's long history, the beautiful nature and the splendid sculptures offers visitors a triple experience.

‘Anatomy of an Angel’ is based on Alfred Boucher’s sculpture ‘L'Hirondelle’ (1920). In Hirst’s version, cross-sections of her body show the anatomical structure beneath the skin, revealing she is human after all. The sculpture plays on dualities: life and death, humour and solemnity, beauty and decay, good and bad.
