GALLERY FLUEGEL-RONCAK with a strong focus on Contemporary Art and Pop Art will open the exhibition "Damien Hirst LOVE" on Friday, 15 April 2016.
The exhibition includes ‘LOVE Gold’, a portfolio of love heart prints each foil blocked with a single butterfly. Eight of the hearts are silkscreened and six are in gold leaf. Damien Hirst's 'LOVE Gold' is the first of two portfolios, the second is titled 'LOVE Silver'.
Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol and grew up in Leeds. In 1984 he moved to London, where he worked in construction before studying for a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College from 1986 to 1989. Whilst in his second year, he conceived and curated a group exhibition entitled ‘Freeze’. The show is commonly acknowledged to have been the launching point not only for Hirst, but for a generation of British artists. Since the late 1980s, Hirst has used a varied practise of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing to explore the complex relationships between art, life and death, explaining: “Art’s about life and it can’t really be about anything else... there isn’t anything else.” Through work that includes the iconic shark in formaldehyde, ‘The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living’ (1991) and ‘For the Love of God’ (2007), a platinum cast of a skull set with 8,601 flawless pavé-set diamonds, he investigates and challenges contemporary belief systems, and dissects the uncertainties at the heart of human experience. Hirst lives and works in Gloucester, Devon and London.
Galerie Fluegel-Roncak in Nuremberg is focused on high quality works by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Julian Opie, James Rosenquist, Alex Katz, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Tracey Emin, Heiner Meyer, Tom Wesselmann, Ed Ruscha or Mel Ramos.
We also have pieces by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Gerhard Richter, Basquiat and many others. Street Art is represented by XOOOOX, Mr. Brainwash, Alec Monopoly, Nelson De La Nuez, Crash and Bambi.
The gallery was founded in 1999. After moving within Nuremberg the exhibition space is at the current adress on two floors since 2008. Changing solo shows expose different positions of our gallery program. Participating at international Art Fairs like Kunst Zurich in November completes our gallery task.
