走紅多年的當代藝術界代表人物,英國巨星DAMIEN HIRST,在香港高古軒舉行最新展覽“DAMIEN HIRST: Visual Candy and Natural History”(達米恩‧赫斯特 視覺糖果與自然歷史),展出早年(1990-95)作品,當中有他最著名,探討生死的鯊魚、牛頭,也有較少人注意的繪畫作品。

DAMIEN HIRST說:「小時候我曾經洗胃,因為我誤把藥丸當作糖果……我不明白為何有些人完全相信醫學,從不質疑,卻不相信藝術。」

是次展覽,展品包括了他《圓點畫》(Spot Paintings)系列、《醫藥箱》(Medicine Cabinets)系列、《自然歷史》(Natural History)系列及蝴蝶《萬花筒》(Kaleidoscope)系列。DAMIEN HIRST最著名的作品,包括了早年成名作《生者對死者無動於衷》(The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living),當年他在澳洲訂了一隻14英呎的大白鯊回來,製成標本,此作品2004年被購下,傳說價錢高達800萬英鎊。一般作品都只有原作一個,但此作在2006年開始腐爛,HIRST又製成新的鯊魚以代替。DAMIEN HIRST憑此作受到注目,成為當代藝術的標誌性人物,但同時作品評價兩極。也有人指他抄襲,近半年他開始備受動物團體等攻擊,指他以藝術之名,藝術網artnet.com就統計過,他作品之下,亡魂多達90萬(隻動物)。

這次展覽之中,也有他這死亡系列的風格作品。無論你取態如何,不妨親自到現場看看。

除此以外,也有他早期的繪畫。HIRST最著名的繪畫,可能是連David Bowie都有收藏的旋轉潑彩畫。除此以外,大家鮮有留意他的其他繪畫。當年年輕的他,畫作被批評為Visual Candy(視覺糖果),但他反而很喜歡此評語,以此為題不斷作畫。展出的作品,都是這種仿如吹波糖式,不介意被批為膚淺的風格,它們有《快樂快樂快樂》(Happy Happy Happy,1993–94 年)、《Wowee Zowee》(1993 年)和《超級傻樂》(Super Silly Fun,1993 年)。
