The Great Liar From The Tiny British Empire, Art Worker Damien Hirst @ A Rental Gallery In The Great Empire Of Japan. Hirst’s Fucked-Up “Cherry Blossoms” Show Really Sucks! ROFL!! 小イギリス帝国の大嘘つき、アートワーカー ダミアン・ハースト @ 大日本帝國の貸画廊。ハーストの超ダサい桜展！爆笑！！
国立新美術館館長 逢坂恵理子氏の貸画廊・国立新美術館 （貸し館）with 大嘘つきのダミアン・ハースト。情けない展覧会ばっかり、、、
In the above written Japanese sentences I’m actually asking OSAKA Eriko, Director General of The National Art Center, Tokyo, to cancel the “Cherry Blossoms” show by the “Great Liar From The Tiny British Empire” + Art Worker Damien Hirst.
The exhibition should run from March, the 2nd until May, the 23rd.
Btw, “everybody” can rent one of the galleries in the National Art Center（貸し館）.
Well, we all remember “The Great European Summer of Art” in 2007, right?
A dream for us art-lovers, as we could visit first the Venice Biennale (obviously every two years), then Art Basel, afterwards Documenta in Kassel (every five years)
and finally “Sculpture Project” in Münster (every ten years).
What did art worker Hirst and his art dealer Jay Jopling (White Cube) plan? “Let’s get these art enthusiasts, this caravan full of media people, collectors and curators to London via a “fake” diamond scull. We will then publish a fake statement, that the scull had been sold for 100 million US Dollars.”
Dear ART+CULTURE readers, you don’t believe that kind of shit, right?
After you have read the following articles, we may discuss this shameful, annoying, disgusting attitude by these British gentlemen (aka motherfuckers with tiny cocks) later.
Damien Hirst and the art of the deal (New York Times)
That $100 million skull, called “For the Love of God,” was Hirst’s ultimate test of whether artistic and financial value could be the same thing. It now languishes in storage in Hatton Garden, London’s jewelry district, Hirst said, owned by him, White Cube and undisclosed investors.
Turns Out the $100 Million Skull That Damien Hirst and White Cube Said They Sold in 2007 Still Belongs to Them
The work appears to have been inside a storage facility in London for 15 years.
Artnet News, January 26, 2022
According to Hirst, he still owns the bauble in partnership with his gallery, White Cube, and a group of unnamed investors.
“On the day we said they were negotiating a discount for buyers, suddenly, miraculously, it has been sold for £50 million, cash,” she told London’s Evening Standard at the time. “How likely is that? Cash is convenient because there is no paper trail.”
Did Damien Hirst really sell diamond skull for £50m?

Hirst’s diamond skull sells for $100 million
By Jeremy Lovel, AUGUST 30, 2007
LONDON (Reuters) – A diamond-encrusted platinum skull by artist Damien Hirst has been sold to an investment group for the asking price of $100 million, a spokeswoman for Hirst’s London gallery White Cube said on Thursday.
The skull, cast from a 35-year-old 18th century European man but retaining the original teeth, is coated with 8,601 diamonds, including a large pink diamond worth more than four million pounds in the centre of its forehead.
The spokeswoman said she could give no more details of the buyer.
“Damien Hirst has retained a participation in the work — he still owns a share of it — in order that he can oversee a global tour of the work that is currently being planned,” she added.
The skull caused a sensation when it first went on display at an exhibition of new works by Hirst at the White Cube in central London on June 3 — not least because of its price tag.
Some critics dismissed it as tasteless while others saw it as a reflection of celebrity-obsessed culture.
Works by Hirst, who first made his name displaying diced and pickled animals, became the most expensive at auction for a living artist when his “Lullaby Spring” pill cabinet sold at Sotheby’s in London for 9.6 million pounds.
The skull is the most expensive piece to date by Hirst, already a millionaire several times over.
The sale of the skull brings to $350 million the value of works sold from the June exhibition. Generally the gallery takes 30 percent and Hirst 70 percent of the proceeds.
As an indication of the wealth he has amassed since being spotted in 1991 by art collector Charles Saatchi, Hirst, who financed the skull himself, said he couldn’t remember whether it had cost 10 or 15 million pounds to make.
He said from the outset he wanted the work, inspired by similarly bejeweled Aztec skulls, to be on public view.
He rejected suggestions that his works were more a standing joke against the art establishment than real works of art.
But when asked at the time of the exhibition what his next project would be he immediately replied: “Two diamond skeletons shagging — no just kidding.”
Fuck all the British, who bought + still buy, endorsed + still endorse art worker Hirst’s shitty Kitsch.
