Yes. Money Is His Medium.

Two sources brought me to the same point tonight which was percolating for some time in my brain. Both in connection with Damian Hurst. The point is: Money is an art medium.

One source was this article in a Taki’s Magazine. The other was a rant by  HENNESSY YOUNGMAN on Youtube.

The latter said: “Yes, Internet, he just siad that: Money is his medium.” About Damien Hurst.

That was never denied, in fact many times emphasised by the artist himself, and in that alone might be his greatest greatness: he distilled the idea for the humanity, shelled it out. The ultimate measure and the ultimate goal is Money. And so, artist (or in the article an art collector) is an alchemist turning some random matter into gold.
