What’s On: Beyond Limits

Damien Hirst, the grand old duke of modern British art, need only sneeze to plunge journalists, collectors and art aficionados everywhere into a right tizzy, so it’s no surprise his new sculptures at the Sotheby’s show at Chatsworth House have attracted a lot of attention. But alongside his elegantly anatomical pieces, there’s plenty of other really interesting work in the exhibition, as this slideshow proves.

Hirst’s two pieces Myth and Legend combine classical grandeur and visceral cross-section, in dramatic, soul-searching sculptures that sit above the magnificent grounds, both complementary and confrontational.

Elsewhere Takashi Murakami’s Flower Matango (A) uses his trademark eyes motif in a technicolour, organic explosion that sits beautifully in a neo-classical temple, Mark Quinn’s Burning Desire is a huge, psycho-sexual exploration of beauty and exotica, whose pulsating red petals are reflected in the lake it sits next to, and Nadim Karam’s totemic Desert Sand looks as though it is throwing down a challenge to the famous old house.

The exhibition is open until October 30, and every piece is for sale.
