If you find yourself in Venice this summer you may want to drop by the Punta della Dogana and Palazzo Grassi to take a look at Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable, running until December 3rd, 2017. The exhibition operates on the conceit that the works on display were discovered in a 2000 year old wreck that Damien Hirst discovered on the floor of the Indian Ocean and raised at his own expense. According to a review published in The Guardian on April 16th, 2017 by Laura Cumming, the show is: “by turns marvellous and beautiful, prodigious, comic and monstrous.”

Hirst has filled his extravaganza with hundreds of pieces made from marble, gold, bronze, crystal, jade and malachite. Throughout the show are references to his past work and other artists work which raise questions about reality and myth and the worth of an art work.

“The scent of flowers like the fragrant notes of a work of art created in joy, are filled with stratagems. If you neglect your flowers or your artworks, know that they will still spill their secrets to the wind.”Louise de Vilmorin
