Damien Hirst: New Religion
A. Kasteev's State Museum of Arts of Republic of Kazakhstan
12 Nov – 19 Dec
The different elements that make up New Religion form a chapel dedicated to desire; the desire to keep mortality at bay but which can’t help confront death.
New Religion is an exhibition of silkscreen prints and sculptural editions by one of the world’s most significant contemporary artists.
This exhibition explores the complex relationship between mortality and faith, and the fascination with science and technology; themes central to Damien Hirst’s longstanding career as a thought provoking and at times controversial artist.
First exhibited at Paul Stolper Gallery in 2005, New Religion has been the subject of shows in Oslo, Moscow, Venice, Sofia, Woking, Gdansk and at All Hallow's Church in London.
