Screening #1 - Thursday, 2 December 2021
Coinciding with the opening of Damien Hirst's solo exhibition 'His Own Worst Enemy' at White Cube Hong Kong, the artist's acclaimed film Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable will be screened at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center on 2 December 2021 and 7 January 2022.
This is the first time Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable (2017) has been shown in Asia. The film chronicles the extraordinary backstory behind Hirst's eponymous exhibitions at the Punta della Dogana and Palazzo Grassi in Venice, 2017, which were over ten years in the making and revolved around the unearthing of the wreck of a large ship, the 'Unbelievable' (Apistos in the original Koine Greek).
Directed by Sam Hobkinson and produced by Nicolas Kent, the film gets to the bottom of Hirst's mission, following a team of archaeologists and divers to the trove of cargo where the story began.
'Damien Hirst: His Own Worst Enemy', is on view at White Cube Hong Kong until 8 January 2021, and features sculptures from the 'Treasures' series, as well as the artist's new group of paintings 'The Revelations'.
