Damien Hirst


Two sculptures by Damien Hirst [] will be on display in the city centre, positioned in well-known locations, making Yorkshire Sculpture International a key part of the Leeds city centre experience in summer 2019.

Standing at six metres high, the painted bronze sculpture _Hymn _(1999–2005), is a monumental reinterpretation of an educational anatomical model intended for use by children, in which a cross-section reveals the internal organs of the male torso.

_Anatomy of an Angel _(2008), will be on display in the Victoria Quarter arcade, in Leeds city centre. This marble work  references classical sculpture. As in _Hymn_, _The Virgin Mother _(2005–2006) and _Myth_ (2010) (on display at Yorkshire Sculpture Park []), the vital organs beneath the skin are exposed.

The display of these works in Leeds city centre is supported by Leeds Business Improvement District [](LeedsBID) [] and Victoria Leeds [].
