    Interesting. From Wikipedia on Damien Hirst,

    On September 10, 2002, on the eve of the first anniversary of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, Hirst said in an interview with BBC News Online:

    “The thing about 9/11 is that it’s kind of like an artwork in its own right … Of course, it’s visually stunning and you’ve got to hand it to them on some level because they’ve achieved something which nobody would have ever have thought possible – especially to a country as big as America. So on one level they kind of need congratulating, which a lot of people shy away from, which is a very dangerous thing.”[9]

    The following week, following public outrage at his remarks, he issued a statement through his company, Science Ltd:

    “I apologise unreservedly for any upset I have caused, particularly to the families of the victims of the events on that terrible day.”[10]

    But by no means does that have anything to do with the art of Cosimo Cavallaro, who made this displayed work which he called “My Sweet Lord.”

  4. whig Says:

    And I happen to find the remarks very contemptible, because they connote admiration of terror. I see this piece — this confection — an entirely different matter. It is very sweet.
