An inflatable Dolphin preserved in formaldehyde

Damien Hirst tribute - dolphin

“Paying homage to Damien Hirst‘s famous installation “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living” in which a tiger shark is preserved in a display case with formaldehyde, Spanish artist Alfonso Batalla presents a reinterpretation dubbed “A Dolphin For Damien.”

This art creation is part of a series by Batalla entitled “Landscape Under Construction,” where the photographer takes vacant spaces and fills them with life. Each sculpture “probes the audience to reassess the idea of the present and past, often referencing familial childhood objects, which inevitably then become the key intellectual protagonists of each composition.” Hit the source below to view additional images from said exhibit.”
