About this title


“Not so much poems, more titles gone mad.? The Cancer Chronicles is a collection of thirteen poems by the artist Damien Hirst. Hirst wrote the book to accompany his work Romance in the Age of Uncertainty – Jesus & His Disciples (Death, Martyrdom, Suicide & Ascension), (not illustrated). Each poem shares a title with the installed elements of the piece, which include thirteen steel and glass cabinets each alluding to the life and death of the Apostles.

In his first published book of writing Hirst explores in written form some of the motifs that have endured in his work: death, decay, disease and belief. The poems provide further insight into Hirst?s sculptural works, but please do not read this publication whilst listening to the music.

About the Author:

Born in Bristol in 1965, Damien Hirst studied at Goldsmith?s College, London. In 1988 he curated the now renowned exhibition, ‘Freeze?, held in London. In 1991, he had his first solo exhibition in London entitled ‘In and Out of Love? and the following year he was a major part of the groundbreaking Young British Artists exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, London. He was awarded the prestigious Turner Prize, London in 1995. Hirst?s work has been shown in many important group and solo shows throughout the world. He lives and works in Devon, London and Mexico.
