MAURIZIO CATTELAN -Supercontemporanea.

MAURIZIO  CATTELAN (1960-)

Maurizio Cattelan is the best-known Italian artist to have emerged internationally in the 1990s, and his reputation continues to grow. This mini second edition, updated to include all of the artist's work to the present, represents a unique collaboration between Phaidon and this important artist. In fact, Cattelan, who often works with shifts in scale in his sculpture, conceived of this mini edition almost as a work of sculpture itself, creating a highly desirable and collectable object/catalogue.The artist's uncompromising, often dangerous will to provoke his audience is exemplified in the notorious Frankie and Jamie (2002), an image of two wax-figure policemen leaning upside-down against a wall - the artist's own ambiguous commemoration of 9/11. The Update essay is by Massimiliano Gioni, noted critic and curator as well as Cattelan's closest collaborator. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher
This comprehensive monograph documents the work of Maurizio Cattelan, the best-known Italian artist to have emerged internationally in the 1990s. His work has featured in three editions of the Venice Biennale (1993; 1997; 1999) and in major venues worldwide, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York (1998); and the Tate Gallery, London (1999). Cattelan creates sculptures that mock the art system and even the artist himself, with considerable wit and audacity. Poking fun at art history (with, for example, a giant, Disneyland-type figure of Pablo Picasso greeting visitors at New York's Museum of Modern Art), monumentality (with a tomb-like, marble epitaph listing all the football matches lost by the England team, exhibited in a prominent London gallery), his native Italy (in a major exhibition celebrating new Italian art, Cattelan created a rug forming a map of his country -inevitably trampled and soiled beneath museum visitors' feet), and often makes fun of himself and his own inability to be responsible, "serious" artist. Part jester, part accuser of the contemporary art world, part thief, Cattelan also conveys a lonely desperation behind the humour and sarcasm in his unconventional works. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
