Scenes from Mr. Hirst's biology class

Hirst3.jpg

Damien Hirst, the artist with the biggest death-obsession around, is back in town with a pretty remarkable exhibit, The man responsible for diamond-encrusted skulls, and tiger sharks submerged in formaldehyde, has set up the classroom from Hell in the lobby of Lever House. That, or the set of the next Stephen King/Tim Burton project. School: The Archeology of Lost Desires, Comprehending Infinity, and the Search for Knowledge, includes 15 medicine cabinets, 30 sheep, one shark, two sides of beef, a chair, a chain of sausages, an umbrella and a birdcage with a dead dove...anybody hungry?

The exhibit is free, and runs until February 9th, when the displays will be returned to Chinatown and sold as the lunch specials. You should check it out.

I couldn't tell what today's lesson was, but then I never could.

Now see...If he was an American artist, he'd never be able to afford this many prescription drugs.

Anyone see the Star Trek where the red shirt guy was turned into a pile of dust? Same principle.

Meet the professor. Remind anyone else of the cage scene in Silence of the Lambs?

And every school needs a mascot.

sorry, what is the point to this jabbering man except to hear his own voice? it's just so full of itself, leaves me completely flat. he's just thrashing around with a stick, trying to convince people he's something,what a ridiculous motivation.
