One of my favorites, David Shrigley mocks Damien Hirst in this postcard. The head in a box refers to Hirst’s claim to fame—a piece titled, A Thousand Years, in which he placed a cow’s head in a minimalist glass box with the severed head decaying for all to see in the gallery, becoming host to life-cycles of insects…I love Shrigley’s concise rendition of not only Hirst’s piece but also of the contemporary YBA art world.
