More about the artwork

The extraordinarily long title of this work by Damien Hirst already points to its gigantic dimensions. More than 27,000 pills are lined up on a mirrored medicine cabinet, carefully placed side by side at predetermined angles. Contemplating them also means risking a look in the mirror: do we believe that we, too, can treat every illness and every ailment with a suitable pill? This work is not only an impressive illustration of the increasing pathologization of our society—it is not without reason that we now refer to depression or burnout as diseases of civilization—but also of the fact that modern science and medicine have taken the place of religion in our culture.
