DESCRIPTION
Damien Hirst's installation at the Lever House, Park Avenue, New York. According to the New York Times he was paid $10 MILLION for this project. Titled - School: The Archeology of Lost Desires, Comprehending Infinity, and The Search For Knowledge. Dead sheep symbolize students - the sheep are suspended in the tanks, mounted on autopsy tables and have intravenous tubes suspended above. It's all rather complicated but the curator, Richard D. Marshall, explains it all very well in a two page statement that is available at the exhibit.
