Him and Hirst

I’ve never really got Damien Hirst’s work. Years ago when he was emerging as a name, I went to the show at the Serpentine Gallery. The friend was with got very excited about the sheep in formaldehyde. I didn’t. But then I always disliked the pickled dissected rabbits and other things in the biology lab at school.

The children seem to love Hymn which is displayed outside Tate Modern. To me it just looks like an oversized teaching aid. Informative, but please explain the art.

Makes an interesting photo though.
