About The Work

Damien Hirt’s VISKEN 5 (Mint) is a larger than life cast of a drug used to treat high blood pressure in tablet form. This particular mint green pill is one of many different pills Hirst has recreated. The artist is interested in pills for both their formal properties - minimalist, succinct, designed - and for their phsyiological abilities to alter the body. Hirst has said “Pills are a brilliant little form, better than any minimalist art. They’re all designed to make you buy them… they come out of flowers, plants, things from the ground, and they make you feel good, you know, to just have a pill, to feel beauty.”
