At first sight you may mistake it as a sight of some slaughter house but to everyone’s surprise this is actually Damien Hirst’s latest shock campaign at NYC’s upscale Lever House (54th & Park Ave) in the form of a vast installation of his trademark formaldehyde-preserved livestock (including a shark, 30 sheep, a split cow, and a pair of doves) titled ‘School: The Archaeology of Lost Desires, Comprehending Infinity, and the Search for Knowledge’. Specially built at a cost of $10 million by real estate developer Aby Rosen who owns Lever House, Hirst assembled livestock imported from England. This frightening exhibition will be evident to all passers-by, day and night, as the entire show will be illuminated 24 hours a day by vast tracts of fluorescent lighting. The building currently houses one of Damien’s masterworks, the 30 foot tall bronze sculpture ‘The Virgin Mother’ on its grounds as part of the building’s permanent collection. Hirst’s most legendary work, ‘The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living’ (the shark in the tank) is currently on display until 2010 at the city’s Met Museum. Have a look!
