I've started reading HIGHARTLITE by Julian Stallabrass. The first part "Famous for being Famous" dissects Damien Hirst's appeal and strategies - describing him and his work as "a collage of quickly recognisable cliche". I walk through Hirst's current show at the Tate this afternoon – it feels empty. Full of stuff and full of people – but empty.
