The Black Object

Actually I wanted to post this later on after my Yemen series of posts, but I can’t help it as the opportunity arises for the title Object on WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. It is about my visit to Damien Hirst’s Exhibition in Doha, at the National Museum of Art. To be honest, I am not a museum person, but as it was Damien Hirst with his strange themes and odd points of view, we wanted to visit the exhibition to see what was going on for more than a month in Doha but went during the last few days of the exhibition.

What we found interesting was this big black dot object, he called it “A Dark Place”, big round black thing…. which my husband looked at in more detail.

The object is millions of flies!
