Damien Hirst is back, and the art world doesn't quite know what to make of the latest grandiose exhibition from the crown prince of contemporary art. "Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable" plunges visitors into a fantasy universe raised from the depths of the Indian Ocean that has been ten years in the making.The two-site exhibition asks visitors to buy into a back story about Hirst being alerted to a shipwreck discovered off the east African coast in 2008 and organizing the recovery of the treasures it contained.Hirst rose to fame as the leader of the YBA gang that dominated the British art scene in the 1990s.All the pieces, some of which exist in three different forms, are to be sold after the exhibition ends.The art world is already busy speculating how much money Hirst will have left after he has covered the huge costs of creating the works over the past decade and transporting them to Venice.
