Damien Hirst – Cornucopia Video

English contemporary artist Damien Hirst gives some insight on the significance of skull imagery, often associated with his masterpieces. Definitely an interesting short video with commentary by Colin McEwan of the British Museum and views of Hirst’s wallet snatching art. Check it out!

  1. thanks for posting this video.
    The Statuephilia exhibition at the British Museum sounds really interesting, I wish I could see it!

  2. I think the video is useful because it shows that Damien Hirst has nothing interesting to say on his skulls. The way he draws his little sketch signing it at the end is so pathetic, even if it is half-kidding. So, yes, skulls are very symbolic, but is it enough to colour them to be an artist? (by the way, I read those skulls are sold 50K each). Why not looking instead at the piece that Tim Noble and Sue Webster made for Statuephilia? It seemed to be a little more meaningful…
