Weng Contemporary gallery presents an exceptional selection of Damien Hirst and Donald Sultan´s artworks at "future is nhow"

The skull, the butterfly and the cabinet are Hirst’s most persistent universal features because more than any other motifs, they capture in different ways all the existential concepts that Damien Hirst has questioned for so many years, concepts that blur the boundaries between the angelic and the demonic, life and death, eternity and the ephemeral, beauty and ugliness. His works, captivating and intense as they are, challenge our stereotyped concepts and beliefs.

The artworks exhibited in the hotel floors represent an enigmatic itinerary that reminds visitors that their existence on earth is transitory and provoke fundamental questions about the meaning of life, life that is characterized by death and the fragility of biological existence. The contrast between the splendour of the artwork and the represented object makes these works desirable and unique in their gender.

Donald Sultan´s sculptures, characterized by simple volumes and bucolical themes, on the other hand, bring the visitors back to a meditation on the beauty of nature, beauty that never the less is characterized by impermanence of life and human existence.
