Hirst has created three site-specific artworks for Sexy Fish, an Asian fish and seafood restaurant in London's Berkeley Square.
Rendered with a blue patina, pair of bronze mermaids are positioned on either end of the bar. Also on display is a large bronze relief panel by Hirst, in which a mermaid features alongside a shark, a reference to the artist’s iconic formaldehyde sculpture, 'The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living' (1991).
The restaurant was designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. In addition to Hirst's works the restaurant also contains pieces by Frank Gehry and Michael Roberts. For more information, please visit the Sexy Fish website.
