If I set fire to the Lourve would that be considered conceptual art?
Sometimes people who can create an illusion and manage to make people hand over vast sums of money to them based on t his illusion they have constructed, are called "Con Artists"
I am sure tha you would agree he uis a master of this.....although the people that pay were already willing and able fools (greedy for money from it in the future....do he's kind of 'fleecing the foolish')
If he did another sheep and named it 'fleecing the foolish', i would be impressed

but you'd be a cunt for doing it. and someone'd kill you.
and damien hirst isn't really a conceptual artist.
