Damien Hirst: New Religion
Exhibition of Damien Hirst’s Works
A. Kasteyev State Museum of Arts, Almaty
12 November, 2016 – 19 December, 2016
The different elements that make up Damien Hirst: New Religion form a chapel dedicated to desire – the desire to keep mortality at bay and yet cannot help but confront death.
New Religion is an exhibition of silkscreen prints and sculptural editions by one of the world’s most prominent contemporary artists.
The show explores the complex relationship between mortality and faith as well as the fascination with science and technology – themes central to Damien Hirst’s long standing career as a thought-provoking and, at times, controversial artist.
First exhibited at Paul Stolper Gallery, London 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.
