A couple of interesting trends seem to have emerged from the recession-era London restaurant scene: to celebrate the opening of Tramshed, Damien Hirst has created a new sculpture ‘Cock and Bull’  specifically for the restaurant Chicken & Steak.  It´s a Hereford cow and cockerel preserved in a steel and glass tank of formaldehyde – is installed 4 metres above diners. The work forms part of the ‘Natural History’ series, Hirst’s seminal collection of preserved animals.

Alongside Hirst’s monumental formaldehyde work, the artist has created a painting entitled ‘Beef and Chicken’ also specifically for the restaurant. Installed at the mezzanine level, the painting depicts the 1990s cartoon characters ‘Cow and Chicken’ (Cartoon Network).
