Damien Hirst- Beautiful Paper Spin for Situation Gigi, 2012, Acrylic on Paper, 28.625 in (728 mm) diameter, Unique Estimate:£15,000 - £20,000

Gigi Giannuzzi, the maverick publisher of Trolley Books and more recently TJ Boulting gallery, was recently diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas. This is devastating news for many who know him and respect his work as one of the bravest and most beautiful of creative forces, publishing through Trolley many important stories through photography, reportage and contemporary art, but also personally, as a rare and one-off crazy spirit.

To support him now, as he has helped and recognised many over the years, artists who know Gigi have donated their work for a special auction to help raise money for him. The funds will go towards alternative cancer treatments which he is currently seeking at a private clinic near Munich, Germany. The auction will feature works by many major artists, as well as several who have worked directly with Gigi over the years. In particular Polly Morgan and Mat Collishaw have been the driving force behind the artists and auction itself, and Sarah Lucas, who has given over her 'situations' space for the night, has hence given the name of the auction - SITUATION GIGI. We hope that many of you will be able to support the auction by bidding on the works available either online or in person at the auction itself. Many thanks in advance for all your help and support!

Tracey Emin- Untitled (Woman on Bed), 1995, Monoprint, 41.9 x 29.7 cm, Unique, Framed by Darbyshire, Estimate:£15,000 - £18,000
