Edition size: 20
H1-7 Enter The Infinite - Being 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 depicts a captivating pattern composed of red, yellow, blue and green thread. Green dominates the composition and the complementary red and yellow detailing brings a regal quality to the tapestry.
The tapestry was made using a Jacquard loom which was invented in 1804 by French weaver Joseph-Marie Jacquard. Hirst’s use of the loom marks a departure from his use of screen printing and painting and distinguishes this collection from many of Hirst’s other artworks. The tapestry can be seen alongside eleven other tapestries that belong to Hirst’s Enter The Infinite collection. Each tapestry in this collection uses the same colour formula, however each pattern is unique and the balance of colours vary across the compositions.
The title of this tapestry carries strong spiritual and religious undertones and hints at questions of life and death. Religion, mortality, life and death are themes that Hirst often explores in his art, notably in his repeated use of skulls, insects and dead animals. While these tapestries don’t address these themes as overtly as some of Hirst’s other works, traces of these questions can be detected throughout the collection.
