Saturday 03 October 1998
Among the items is Damien Hirst's first effort to create art from dead creatures preserved in formaldehyde.
The auction, which takes place next week, also includes the unsettling mutant dummies of the Chapman brothers, as well as works by Adam Chodzko and Marc Quinn.
Hirst's Alone Yet Together is a cabinet containing a hundred fish preserved in formaldehyde solution, with an estimated sale price of pounds 100,000 to pounds 150,000.
Quinn is represented in the auction by the Property of A Lady, a polyurethane rubber and stainless steel sculpture representing a melting candle in the shape of a human body. It has an estimated sale tag of pounds 25,000 to pounds 35,000.
