damien hirst “treasures from the wreck of the unbelievable”

Somewhere between lies and truth lies the truth

I’m sure, if you googled Damien Hirst’s name or the name of this exhibition, you would get a plethora of articles about this extravaganza. I’m sure many critics have had their say about it as well. What two cents could I possibly add to that infinite ocean of words?

Having a kind of a jukebox in my head I almost always can count on some lyrics to express what I feel. This time around I will borrow a line from a song by Skillet that goes like this “Don’t wake me ’cause I don’t wanna leave this dream”. That is exactly how I felt when I stepped back into the night having seen the second part of the exhibition at the Punta della Dogana space. I didn’t want to wake up from this incredibly intricate, surreal, highly sensual dream where everything was both real and presumed all at once. It was a celebration of imagination, creativity, craftsmanship and fantasy. It was an over the top legend, an apparition in a city that is a legendary apparition itself…
