Item description for The Cancer Chronicles by Damien Hirst...
"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.
