A much anticipated exhibition by one of Britain’s most renowned modern artists, Damien Hirst. Tate Modern will present the first substantial survey of Damien Hirst’s work ever held in the UK. Hirst is instantly recognisable for his controversial art that has provoked many a debate. For nearly a quarter of a century Hirst has been on the scene when his first show, Freeze was held in 1988. A good deal of his works will be display at the Tate for a limited time including the ‘For the Love of God’ sculpture. This will sit in the Turbine Hall for all to see, not surprisingly it will be within a chained down glass box as this is the is a life-size platinum cast of an human skull, covered by 8,601
flawless diamonds, inset with the original skull’s teeth. At the front of the cranium is a 52.4 carat pink diamond.
