Damien, I’m Famished (After Damien Hirst)

Krit Ngamsom’s kinetic sculptures are tongue-in-cheek references to iconic artworks that have changed definitions and assumptions about art. Damien, I’m Famished is a playful reinterpretation of Damien Hirst’s iconic work, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living. Featuring the shark bursting from its tank to go after a tasty snack of fish, Ngamsom’s reinterpretation of the work draws its inspiration from notions of Thai-ness – and in this case, the Buddhist practice of Life Release.
