Truly Unique and Unbelievable – Damien Hirst – Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable
I’d first of all like to give FULL credit to all the artists and sculptors and workers who alongside Damien Hirst produced such a unique awe inspiring exhibition. (Actually two, in separate locations in Venice.)
You produced work that truly brought the ‘Wow’ factor, to almost every visitor through the doors.
Whilst being lucky enough to visit Venice, I also had chance to see this exhibition spread over two venues in the city.
A fantastic contrast to all the historic art and culture which packs the city between canals and waterways.
I can’t even contemplate how you achieved it, how you managed to get such huge and outrageous pieces into the country let alone into the galleries.
I consider myself lucky to have seen such unique, imaginative, weird and aspirational pieces.
Some stunning in their realism, some traumatically violent and disturbing. Without exception every one a symbol of the talent of those who carried the vision of Damien Hirst forward to stunning fruition.
I’ve seen art critics reports saying this exhibition was poor, not worth visiting and not great art. Really? Wow. I know it’s in the eye of the beholder but maybe they went to a different show to the rest of us.
I now have the gorgeous coffee table book to browse through when I need inspiration, although I admit it, I don’t own a coffee table!
Thanks Mr Hirst, your crew, curators and everyone involved as well as wonderful watery Venice for hosting this show.
The photographs here are my own, humble and few. A mere taster of the brilliance I saw on a fantastic short break in Venice.
