Damien Hirst at the Tate Modern

4 April  –  9 September 2012
Tate modern exhibition!

This is a much anticipated exhibition for me as I have been fascinated with Hirst's work since my art teacher back in GCSE's showed me his Mother and Child Divided, a four-part sculpture of a bisected cow and calf suspended in formaldehyde. His work is undoubtedly one of most recognised for a living artist, and certainly reaping the benefits of his fame and fortune.
I had actually come across a documentary "The great contemporary art bubble" that explains why Artists such as Hirst have been such a success.

The exhibition will include such works as the ever famous "The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living  1991"(below) amongst an array of other former art pieces.

Really great illustrated lectures!

I was introduced to these illustrated lectures a while back, they have recently come back into my life and I feel very strongly about the message that is being put forward!

The Living Wall

A russian street artist, Nikita Nomerz, makes derelict structures come alive by adding eyes and facial features.
He says: 
"I started in school with classic hip hop graffiti but became more interested in street art and began all sorts of experiments. Now basically I like to play with space and objects. I am inspired by the place itself. I love watching the city and finding an interesting point. Usually I do not spend so much time to create one work, sometimes less than an hour. But it all depends on the size of the object and my ideas" 
"It would be nice if people started paying more attention to what is around us."

I guess its better than the ship in a bottle...?

New installation on the fourth plinth has had mixed reviews. I personally think its allot better than some of the previous works we have had up there, my favourite so far being Alison Lapper.
One of the many comments include how this fits in with the statues already standing at Trafalgar Square, that being the image of authority figures sat on horses. The artist themselves say that it was more to remind us to appreciate the little moments and achievements...
