TREASURES OF THE WRECK OF THE UNBELIEVABLE - DAMIAN HIRST IN VENICE

TREASURES OF THE WRECK OF THE UNBELIEVABLE
DAMIAN HIRST IN VENICE

 

 

 

GOLD COINS IN PALAZZO GRASSI

 

Sculptures

 

It is all a very well curated story, but it draws one really into it and one starts imaging...
The spectator is really fooled by the story telling and gets the irony step by step..
Funny and ironic elements in almost every item make it interesting to see if one really catches all hints, all references, allusions and all irony.
At the same time, the taste of the contemporary society and beauty ideals are brought to the spectator eyes. One finds the items beautiful because the beauty rules of today are applied - one can find actual models and artists in the sculptures and thus the irony is again used against the spectator.
And to be honest, some items are just pretty and beautiful, while others are too much for my personal taste, too much irony, too much exaggeration and pop culture.
But overall - a really must see when in Venice and for me personally an inspiration and that is why I wanted to share it with you.
