The Damien Hirst‘s exhibition (with all his key works from over twenty years) at Tate Modern is absolutely unmissable and can be quite disturbing as well.
I’ve taken a few pictures with my phone and here are the ones that highlight his work on death or life.

Photography In Abundance by Eric Kessels presents a million photos uploaded from Flickr, Facebook and Google in one single day of our lives.
Interesting to literally ‘see’ the the huge amount of visual information on a daily basis. This cool installation makes us to realize how much info we consume, share and produce on our digital activities.

In Mayfair’s White Cube, the Nazis were looking at the paintings on the walls. In the Hoxton’s gallery you would take a while to realise that all those mini children were actually sculptures, just to later look at their animal faces. So impressive. However, what I liked the most was the ‘evil chapel’ on the second floor, full of busts of saints shockingly deformed.
At the end of the video below, there is a view of the chapel, don’t miss that out. ;D

Xu Bing collected dust from the ruins of the World Trade Center in the aftermath of 9/11 to create his powerful “Where Does the Dust Itself Collect” (2011). Ten years after the tragedy, the dust was “stenciled” onto a wooden floor surface in the shape of a quotation from a Zen Buddhist poem that says: “As there is nothing from the first, / Where does the dust itself collect?”. See below some shots of the artist’s process and the final piece.
