Damien Hirst

Sensation, 2003

Painted bronze 198 × 318 × 165 cm

Sensation investigates the complex relationships between art and science and how learning helps us to understand the realities of life. This sculpture by British artist Damien Hirst (b.1965) is painted bronze and based on an anatomical model of a 3 mm section of human skin. It was first shown in the exhibition In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (2004) at Tate Britain, a three-person show of works by Hirst, Angus Fairhurst (1966-2008) and Sarah Lucas (b.1962).
