2009年在与高顿·伯恩Gordon Burn对话时,达明·赫斯特曾说过这样一番话:“我觉得我已经到达了某种程度,并以一种截然不同的方式。我觉得我开始掌握了可以驾驭一切的一些工具,所有那些印象——疑虑、恐惧,一切——都开始脱离我的舞台了。”

白立方此次展示了达明·赫斯特最新创作的19幅作品,其中,在霍克斯顿广场展馆展示的是赫斯特的一些连屏画,创作时间从2007-2009年不等,其中以乌鸦为主题的作品描绘了像深夜一般漆黑的乌鸦,在蓝天的背景下挣扎扑腾着翅膀,鲜红的颜料流过它的颈脖。在马森的庭院展馆展出的一共四组的三联屏作品中,这些乌鸦再次出现,好像不祥的预兆不断地在那儿盘旋反复;他们是鬼魂出没的帮凶,是骸骨们的衣钵,在其中还能看到日常生活中的寻常事物,如椅子、柠檬、水果刀,甚至动物骷髅、酒瓶和蝎子。
著名艺术评论家Rudi Fuchs在为这批画写评论文章时说:“当我尝试着去理解和斯特的最新画作时,我的视觉感官让我不断回想起贝克特——他的剧作永远是那么不典型、不突出,而主题却总是那么让人刻骨铭心,让人欲言又止。言语被这些画作所打搅,发不出声响;线条被硬生生地割断,观察力的香气指引着我们慢慢摸索向这画面背后的隐约清晰的真相。

达明·赫斯特于1965年出生在英国布里斯托尔,如今生活工作在伦敦和德文郡。他参加过无数的群站,包括纽约P.S.1 当代艺术中心的“走进我/离开我” (Into Me / Out of Me,2006),泰特美术馆的‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida’ (2004), 第50届威尼斯双年展(2003)以及泰特摩登的“世纪城市”(Century City,2001)。其个展包括伦敦华莱士画廊的“爱,一个不少”(No Love Lost,2009),基辅平丘克艺术中心(Pinchuk Art Centre, Kiev,2009)“安魂曲”(Requiem),阿姆斯特丹国立美术馆(Rijksmuseum)、奥斯陆现代艺术馆(Astrup Fearnley Museet fur Moderne Kunst)、波士顿美术馆(Oslo Museum of Fine Arts)的《为了上帝的爱》(For the Love of God,2005),以及那不勒斯的考古博物馆(Archaeological Museum,Naples,2004)。他于1994年收到了柏林德意志学术交流中心DAAD 的奖学金,紧接着于1995年获得了透纳奖。其个人回顾展“Murderme”于2006年在伦敦蛇形画廊Serpentine Gallery举行。

白立方-马森的庭院White Cube, Mason’s Yard 成立于1996年9月,坐落在伦敦杜克街圣詹姆斯街区,画廊建筑的前身是供电站,由MRJ Rundell & Associates设计,是圣詹姆斯地区唯一一幢屹立30年之久的独立建筑。建筑底楼的画廊主展厅光线充裕,双层高,二楼的副展厅总展示面积5000平方英尺(约465平方米)。白立方-马森的庭院一直坚持举办国际性、高端展览项目,并且每年会为签约艺术家加布里埃尔 罗斯科Gabriel Orozco举办特展。

 

2000年4月,白立方-霍克斯顿广场正式开幕,是伦敦东翼第二大画廊,画廊建筑是19世纪20年代的全采光厂房,亦由MRJ Rundell and Associates设计,总展览面积2000平方英尺(约186平方米)。

 

白立方当代艺术机构由杰 乔普林Jay Jopling 成立于1993年,最初选址在杜克街44号,圣詹姆斯区,伦敦最传统的艺术交易街,是简简单单的白立方,由建筑师克劳迪 斯文特Claudio Silvestrin设计,做一些小型展览,是过去几十年间最具争议的商业画廊之一。

 

白立方的主旨是创建一个亲切的空间,艺术家可在针对性的环境内,只为一个想法、一个艺术家或一个项目而全情投入,这在商业画廊中无疑是特立独行的。自成立以来,画廊先后赢得众多国际一线艺术家和英国本土艺术家的青睐,包括弗朗茨 阿克曼Franz Ackermann,米洛斯拉夫 巴勒卡Miroslaw Balka,查克 克洛斯Chuck Close,特雷西 艾明Tracey Emin,卡塔琳娜 弗里茨克Katharina Fritsch,莫娜 哈透姆Mona Hatoum,达明 赫斯特Damien Hirst,加里 休姆Gary Hume,埃尔斯沃 思凯利Ellsworth Kelly,朱莉 梅雷图Julie Mehretu,多丽丝 萨尔塞Doris Salcedo,杉本博Hiroshi Sugimoto,吕克 图伊曼斯Luc Tuymans和杰夫 沃尔Jeff Wall。

Hoxton Square and Mason’s Yard

‘I feel like I’ve arrived somewhere […] In a completely different way, I feel I’ve got the tools to navigate somewhere. All that expression – doubts, fears, everything – can come out in this arena.’
Damien Hirst in conversation with Gordon Burn, 2009

White Cube is pleased to present nineteen new paintings by Damien Hirst. The exhibition will be staged at White Cube Mason’s Yard and White Cube Hoxton Square.

At White Cube Hoxton Square, Hirst will present a group of paintings, which include three triptychs from 2007-09, each depicting crows shot in mid-flight against blue skies, with outspread wings and violent splatters of red paint across their bodies. In the four triptychs on show in the lower ground floor at White Cube Mason’s Yard, these crows reappear, as omens of bad news. They often share the space with ghost-like figures, skeletal forms and objects, including chairs, lemons, knives, animal skulls, wine glasses or a scorpion.

Rudi Fuchs begins his essay with the following reading of these paintings: ‘When I try to pinpoint what the visual mood is in Hirst’s new images, I am constantly reminded of Beckett – not of any one story in particular, though subject matter is important, but of the austere dryness of the language. Sentences are interrupted, lines are broken, observations are fragmented in order to direct us slowly towards a clearer perception of the real.’

Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol, UK. He lives and works in London and Devon. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions including ‘Into Me / Out of Me’, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York (2006), ‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida’, Tate Britain (2004), the 50th Venice Biennale (2003) and ‘Century City’, Tate Modern (2001). Solo exhibitions include ‘No Love Lost’, The Wallace Collection, London (2009), ‘Requiem’, Pinchuk Art Centre, Kiev (2009), ‘For the Love of God’, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (2008), Astrup Fearnley Museet fur Moderne Kunst, Oslo (2005), Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2005) and Archaeological Museum, Naples (2004). He received the DAAD fellowship in Berlin in 1994 and the Turner Prize in 1995. An exhibition of the artist’s private collection, ‘Murderme’, was held at Serpentine Gallery, London in 2006.

A fully illustrated catalogue, with an essay by Rudi Fuchs and an interview with the artist by the late Gordon Burn, will be published to accompany the exhibition.

‘No Love Lost’ by Damien Hirst continues at The Wallace Collection until 24 January 2010. For further information please contact the gallery on +44 (0)207 563 9500.

White Cube is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm. For further information, please contact Honey Luard or Sara Macdonald on +44 (0)20 7930 5373.
