Neighbors of a proposed Damien Hirst studio in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK are not happy about the artist’s plans. He has already been given permission to build an “art gallery, workshop and center of excellence”.
The problem is that he also plans to build an “abattoir rail” and “fish preparation area”. So his neighbors are petitioning to have his plans stopped.
Fears over Hirst ‘slaughterhouse’
Kim Trinder, who lives opposite the land in Dudbridge Road, said: “It’s disgusting. I don’t want a slaughterhouse and dead animals here. He kills them and then wants to put them in a showroom. Who would do that?” BBC
