Holders of a Great Expectations NFT can now purchase a print of the artwork featured on their NFT. The prints are available on HENI Editions and the purchase window is open from today 9th November 2023 to 18th January 2024 at 17:00 GMT. Each NFT can be used only once in respect of the purchase of the corresponding physical print. The NFT will be burned in the process. Each of the editions in the series will be unique.
The editions are Diasec-mounted Giclée prints on aluminium composite panel, measuring 80 x 80 cm each. The prints are priced at $2,500 (plus any applicable taxes). Each print will be hand-signed by Damien Hirst on the front and numbered on the label.
Released to holders of The Currency NFTs, the Great Expectations NFT collection contains 10,000 unique artworks made by Damien Hirst. At the centre of these artworks are grids of emoji-like pregnant women whose forms have been constructed from spots of various shapes, sizes and colours taken directly from The Currency artworks themselves. The collection references some of the most iconic imagery from Hirst’s monumental career.
While the structure and basic forms are repeated across the series, each NFT is individualised by colour or unique attributes. The attributes are divided into seven categories, which include accessories, clothes, facial features, hair, headwear, occupation and background. Some attributes or combinations of attributes are rarer than others.
I imagine that inside the 12 bellies are 12 gifts representing infinite possibilities. Like Pandora’s box. We are inventing the future together. The possibilities are infinite.— Damien Hirst
