Damien Hirst has created a striking new artwork to celebrate the opening of Mark Hix’s new restaurant venture, Tramshed, in East London. ‘Cock and Bull’ features a Hereford cow and cockerel preserved in a steel and glass tank of formaldehyde. These animals refer to Tramshed’s menu, as it mainly includes chicken and beef dishes. The piece is elevated 4 metres above diners in the centre of the 1000 sq ft restaurant, which used to be an electricity generating station. Click through to see pictures of the artwork:
