Damien Hirst – The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living & Edwaert Collier – Still Life with a Volume of Wither’s ‘Emblemes’
PART 1 – Damien Hirst – The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living
- Write down a few words giving your first reaction to the piece
- Do you have an emotional response to it?
- What do you think it’s about?
- What do you think about the title?
My immediate response is a combination of cynicism and curiosity. I will return to the cynicism in Part 3, but my curiosity stems from both the shark and the title of the work.
