“More Life: The Work of Damien Hirst” by Jerry Saltz – June 1, 1995, Art in America

With zero commentary, here follows an excerpt from this article now 15 years old:

“There’s a moment in the movie Blade Runner when Roy, the Nexus-6 replicant (a beautiful, nearly human android), finally finds the scientist-inventor who created him. Roy asks what any of us might ask, could we confront our maker: why, after giving us life, do you have to take it away? The slightly bemused scientist listens and then asks, “What seems to be the problem, Roy?” – to which Roy emphatically answers, “Death seems to be the problem! I want more life… fucker!” In a nutshell, that’s what Damien Hirst’s work is all about – “more life.”
