Published to coincide with ‘His Own Worst Enemy’ at White Cube Hong Kong, this catalogue features sculptures from the artist’s acclaimed ‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’ alongside new paintings from his series ‘The Revelations’ (2021). In conversation with Tim Marlow, Hirst re-examines the context in which he produced the two bodies of work, from finding a way through a post-truth era to apprehending the darkness of outer space. Designed by (Studio) Jonathan Hares, the publication leads with double-page installation views and full-bleed details of the paintings, which show the materiality of their impasto surface. A focused selection of sculptures is illustrated in the latter part of the publication, reproduced large-scale, in disarming clarity.
