Damien Hirst collaboration with Lalique Art

Ten works from the ‘Eternal’ collection are now on display for the first time in the US, at Lalique’s Miami boutique. The collection is the result of a collaboration between Lalique Art and British artist, Damien Hirst.

The ‘Eternal’ collaboration began in 2015 with the creation of a collection of glass crystal panels. The 2017 collection has expanded upon this with the addition on of a further 12 pieces, which were shown in Paris this October. The limited edition crystal pieces feature a selection of the artist’s most recognizable motifs, including: the cross, dove and the skull.

The presentation of these exceptional pieces is the culmination of four years of research and conversation between Hirst and Lalique, combining the creative experiences of both artist and craftsman. On the collaboration Hirst has stated: “It’s amazing being able to use all the expert craftsmanship of Lalique for something new, and the results are beyond all my expectations”.

Crystal sculptures

Five of the seven sculptures from the ‘Eternal’ collection will be exhibited in the Miami boutique, these are: Eternal Sleep, Eternal Cross, Eternal Immaculate, Eternal Belief and Eternal Sinner.

Crystal panels

The five crystal panels from the ‘Eternal’ collection will be exhibited in the Miami boutique. To create each panel, a mold of the central image is hot-pressed into the center of the Lalique crystal glass panel, ensuring the pieces capture the light, replicating the effect of stained-glass windows. Each piece is numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist.

Following the presentation at Lalique Bal Harbour boutique during Art Basel, the works will be showcased at the following Lalique boutiques:

• Beverly Hills: January 29 – March 5, 2018

• Chicago: March 12 – April 23, 2018
