Damien Hirst is a parody of himself


A "gallery cleaner" mistakenly thought an installation piece by Damien Hirst was random trash left over from a party, and threw it away. Happily, the mistake was discovered in time, and the work was re-created from photos that had been taken. The piece is valued at £5,000.

Of course, trash as art is nothing new, decades old in fact. I imagine that Hirst was laughing at the idiots that take this seriously. I hope.
