Open today at the Chatsworth house grounds in the UK, is the annual Sotheby’s Beyond Limits sculpture exhibition. This years show includes two new works from Damien Hirst entitled Legend and Myth. They follow on Hirst’s earlier works such as Hymn – A large anatomical dummy and Virgin Mother – A dissected woman.Hirst said that the pieces were a continuation of his interest in the relationship between science and religion. “In a way science brings religion down to earth and to cut open mythical creatures and expose them as no different to mortal horses is somehow still magical. It’s kind of like exploding a myth to make it real.” A total of 26 sculptures by more than 20 leading artists from around the world including William Turnbull, Marc Quinn, René Magritte, Nadim Karam, Takashi Murakami, Jaume Plensa, Ju Ming and Barry Flanagan, will be on display until October 31st.
If you are in the UK you can Book from here – Its roughly about an hour and a half journey by train from London. Personally I would say worth it to get to see these!
