Description
This mounted box of "Biotex" detergent (signed by the artist on the plinth) produced by Damien Hirst is a testament to the artist's aim to create a sanitized environment through which the concept of immortality can be explored. The brightly coloured cleaning products, with their Pop-art style lettering and childishly pleasing forms, are employed by the artist as a symbol of contemporary society’s utopian aspirations, Hirst explains: “they give us hope, some might say false hope, they seem to say that we can achieve immorality through cleanliness, that we can somehow make the bad things in the world go away, which of course we can’t.”
