The works celebrate Tramshed's menu which is centred around chicken and beef dishes. ‘Cock and Bull’ (2012) – a Hereford cow and cockerel preserved in a steel and glass tank of formaldehyde – is elevated above diners in the centre of the 1000 square foot old electricity generating station. The work forms part of the 'Natural History' series, Hirst's seminal collection of preserved animals.

Alongside the monumental formaldehyde work, the artist has created a painting entitled 'Beef and Chicken' (2012). Installed at the mezzanine level, the painting depicts the 1990s cartoon characters 'Cow and Chicken' (Cartoon Network).
