Damien Hirst, Away From the Flock, 1994

The collection, which is on permanent display, reflects Sir Jacob Epstein's lifelong preoccupation with birth, new life, fertility and the spiritual and religious concerns surrounding these extensive and significant themes.There is a cyclic approach to this pairing, with Epstein exploring the joy of life and Hirst's fascination with our own mortality. The Artist Rooms display will offer a contemporary insight into the works within the collection and will be accompanied by a series of inspired satellite exhibitions and events through the course of the year.
