Scaricare Maurizio Cattelan. Catalogo della mostra (Parigi, Centre George Pompidou, dall'11 gennaio 2000). Ediz. italiana e inglese Gratis
Born in Padua in 1960, Maurizio Cattelan is one of the interesting artists on the international art scene. He desecrated museums with his exhibitions of embalmed horses and dogs; he filled ancient frescoed room with mounds of soil topped with an olive tree; he created an ironic Pirandellian work comprising small rubber masks of his own face; he made spectators shiver at the 47th Venice Biennale by covering per fakir under a thick blanket of soil unveiling only the hands, joined in a position of prayer. Cattelan's black-humoured and cynical works, characterized by the language of tragicomedy and desecration, have always baffled and even disturbed spectators. Starting with his first solo exhibition at the Biennale organized by Szeemann, this revised and expanded edition documents this artist's creative output.
