Meaning & Analysis

The print captures Hirst’s excellent draughtsmanship, demonstrating how the artist excels at drawing, as well as sculpture and producing innovative installations. The work was made in 2012 to celebrate the occasion of Hirst’s exhibition, Two Weeks One Summer, which was on display at the White Cube Bermondsey in 2012.

The inclusion of the vitrine which surrounds the birds is characteristic of Hirst’s other artistic pursuits. The artist is famous for incorporating cage-like structures into his artworks. The earliest example of Hirst’s use of vitrines is his work, A Thousand Years, made in 1990. The piece was composed of a pair of interlinked glass cells which hosted a colony of flies that were feeding off a rotting cow’s head.
