“Gone but not Forgotten”

Hirst's 'Gone but not Forgotten' (2014) – the gilded skeleton of a three-metre tall woolly mammoth – is currently on display in the garden of the Faena Hotel Miami Beach.  Hirst explained of the sculpture: "The mammoth comes from a time and place that we cannot ever fully understand. Despite its scientific reality, it has attained an almost mythical status and I wanted to play with these ideas of legend, history and science by gilding the skeleton and placing it within a monolithic gold tank. It's such an absolute expression of mortality, but I've decorated it to the point where it's become something else, I've pitched everything I can against death to create something more hopeful, it is gone but not forgotten."
