Marianne, Hildegard

11 November 1992 – 15 November 1992
Solo Exhibition. Unfair/Jay Jopling, Cologne, Germany.

At Jay Jopling’s stall, Hirst showed an installation work, originally entitled ‘Marianne, Hildegard’ (1992). Seated identical twins were positioned in front of a pair of spot paintings applied directly to the wall. The work’s title changes according to the names of the participating twins. In 2009, the piece was exhibited for a second time, employing over forty sets of twins at Tate Modern’s group exhibition ‘Pop Life: Art in a Material World.’
