Damien Hirst Display Tank

The Project

When conceptual artist Damien Hirst needed an aquarium specialist to build large bespoke tanks to house his conceptual artwork, he turned to CASCO for their expertise in this area. In particular, Hirst required a tank to house a 13ft tiger shark preserved in formaldehyde, and weighing a total of 23 tons, for his iconic work titled 'The Physical Immpossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living'.

All of the tanks were constructed from glass and steel, with thick white frames contrasting the turquoise colour of the formaldehyde. Forming an integral part of the artwork structures, Damien needed each custom-made aquarium to meet his very particular specifications.
