Guys he buys the bodies of animals that are ALREADY dead. He doesn’t kill
them. What the **** gave you guys that idea?
But are the sharks/butterflies/flies quite flattered? And would you be so
flattered if you were specifally killed to be made into art?
I think you might have to face the possibility that Noel is a prat too
is good to see that someone gets it, this is merely a sadistic game by the
What a quandary British “art” got itself into; In that there was allegedly
none before, then all of a sudden because Sarah Kent said it was so – it
was so. Damien hirst is a nice person (and actually a very funny guy) but
even he would agree (before every knob bigged him up) that he was the
luckiest Yorkshire-lad half-wit on the planet
Is THIS art ???? I would like to see the artist in the tank unstead and
leave the shark alife: to me it is worth more !
That is really quite a brilliant way to put it.
A drunk ******* on the street is art. Everything is art if you look at it
with an artistic view point. I believe this is the point of his work. Many
people view art in a very small category with all sorts of restrictions but
art has no barriers. A butterfly is an insect but wouldn’t you also
consider it art? I can understand people being upset with his work because
of the fact that much of it used to be living, but if I died and then was
later used as art I would be quite flattered.
Damian Hirst, adding the ‘F’ to art.
Because normal people are there to buy food to eat not look at the chicken
wings and speculate what they are to feel or the deeper meaning in why they
are packaged in one direction. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. I see
what Hirst is doing and understand why Noel is into it. Noel is the kind of
person to go to the supermarket and not give a **** about it cause he’s in
the cookie aisle listening to the rolling stones and loading up the cart
with sweets and having one on the way to checkout.
If you meet someone new, and decide you’re attracted to them, then they
suddenly have value. If you’re not, then you move on. You don’t suddenly
hate them for daring to be a potential mate, just cuz YOU couldn’t love
them. BUT if you find out they’re getting married, you think, “Oh, good for
them.” You’re not angry that someone cares about them when you don’t. This
art is the same. Just cuz it’s not your type doesn’t mean it isn’t
important to other people. Please respect that.
Then pray tell: what is art? Let’s talk about that. Art that evokes no
emotion isn’t real art. Art that has nothing of it’s creator in it isn’t
real art. But that’s it. If it took a real bit of your effort and soul and
feeling, then it’s art, isn’t it? I think you’re not seeing how much art
actually exists in the world. And, he’s destroyed the lives of flies.
That’s all. He buys already dead things for his work. He harms no one. How
offended you are is more shocking than anything he’s made.
Not at first, which is the point: at the start, as they said, people would
walk into a gallery and go “Wtf, this isn’t art.” And people are still
doing that, now. But you ARE impressed by their existence when you visit a
museum. His work is considered valuable now, as he said, simply because
people put prices on it. The work itself isn’t work anything unless the
beholder finds value in it. The beholders find his work valuable, so it is.
If you don’t, then it’s not your concern.
What a load of ****… Seriously… -_-

Damien Hurst exhibition (Tate London) ft. Noel Fielding
I came here looking for Noel Fielding; I leave looking for cheap flights to
London. I *need* to see this exhibition like I need air.
