‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’ charts the story behind Damien Hirst’s most ambitious project to date. Almost ten years in the making, the eponymous exhibition was displayed across the Punta della Dogana and Palazzo Grassi in Venice from 9th April – 3rd December 2017. Hirst collaborated with director Sam Hobkinson and producer Nicolas Kent to chronicle the exhibition’s extraordinary backstory; the discovery and excavation of an ancient shipwreck.
Working with Sam, I designed and created the expedition in East Africa, an ocean based archeological mission in a secret location of the coast of Zanzibar. Shooting took place in 2016, so it's with great excitement that you can now see this result of this truly amazing project.
