The exhibition will run from the Monday 9th of February to the 21st of February 2015, over Valentine’s Day, and will focus exclusively on the theme of love. As Hirst says: ‘Love is a beautiful thing and I see it as a small antidote to all the horror in the world.’
The exhibition includes ‘LOVE Gold’, a portfolio of love heart prints each foil blocked with a single butterfly. Eight of the hearts are silkscreened and six are in gold leaf. Damien Hirst‘s ‘LOVE Gold’ is the first of two portfolios, the second, titled ‘LOVE Silver’, will be released in June 2015. It will include eight silkscreen prints in colours different to ‘LOVE Gold’ and six prints in silver leaf, each foil blocked with a single butterfly.
