Visiting the MCA, I found Damien Hirst to spark my interest. I was paticularly interested in the Saint Sebastian, Exquisite Pain, 2007. It made me question the artwork...what does it mean and why? Damien Hirst does presents death as a central theme but I could not express any emotion for this piece of art. It was simply too cold, too callous and too technical. Perhaps this was the intention of Damien Hirst...to show the emptiness of death and the abscence of emotion. I also included some other works to show examples of his work.

  2. This exhibit was like a roller coaster ride, it stirred many emotions in me, like anger, sadness, and fright, but it was a very moving piece, none the less!!!
