H1-11 Enter The Infinite - Prophecy is a Jacquard-woven tapestry produced by contemporary artist Damien Hirst in 2016. The square tapestry comes in a limited edition size of 20 and shows an intricate kaleidoscope pattern composed of red, yellow, blue and green thread against a white backdrop. At the centre of the composition is a yellow circle and the design unfolds from this focal point like an explosion of colour.
This tapestry is one of twelve tapestries which were all produced by Hirst in 2016 using a Jacquard loom. Together, the tapestries are part of Hirst’s Enter The Infinite collection. Each tapestry in the collection follows a similar colour scheme and Hirst does not once deviate from using the same four colours: red, yellow, blue and green. The tapestries all have a unique pattern that is governed by symmetry.
The titles of the tapestries in this collection carry strong spiritual and religious undertones. Hirst is interested in contemporary belief systems such as religion, love and medicine and often explores them in his artworks, such as he does in Enter The Infinite. For Hirst, these belief systems could bring out the tensions at the heart of human existence, something which fascinated the artist.
