The Big Blue installation view, Photography by Mike Bruce, Damien Hirst artwork © Damien Hirst and Science Ltd, all rights reserved. DACS 2015

Conceived by Damien Hirst and curated by Ordovas gallery, this group show looks at how the sea has influenced artists. It includes one of only two surviving seascapes by Francis Bacon, a fragment of Roman sarcophagus with Tritons carved in marble and Hirst's ‘Heaven’ (2008-09) a follow up to his first monumental shark sculpture, ‘The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living’ (1991). Like the original, this smaller version of a baby Tiger Shark is preserved in a tank of formaldehyde, so you can get up close and personal without fear of it taking a bite out of you.
