Intuitive, irreverent, irritating, Maurizio Cattelan is the enfant terrible of contemporary art. Returning to Milan with the new "Breath Ghosts Blind" exhibition, set up at HangarBicocca and curated by Roberta Tenconi and Vicente Todolí. A site-specific project that revisits a historical work and expands into unpublished works, organized in three acts that involve the spaces of the Piazza, the Navate and the Cube. Touching universal themes, such as the fragility of existence, memory and the sense of individual and collective loss. Already Pinocchio, in a phase of his career in which the famous wooden puppet was a sort of alter-ego, and author of provocative works - in Milan “L.O.V.E”. who presides over Piazza Affari with the third finger raised - Cattelan continues to be talked about, even after the official "retirement", marked by the great exhibition at the Guggenheim in New York in 2011, the highest recognition for a contemporary and only Italian artist to have it had. A magazine (Toilet Paper, since 2010) and some forays on the art scene bring him back to the center of international attention: with "America", the golden toilet installed and in use at the Guggenheim since 2016, or the "banana" (real) hung on the wall (and then eaten), sold for $ 120,000 at Art Basel Miami in 2019. But what matters is the idea. And behind the provocation Cattelan tackles the great themes of existence, life, death, family ties, and confronts current news, masterfully extracting the most evocative images from everyday life, as in a ready-made. To transform them into works and place them in the context of art, where their communicative charge is strengthened and takes on new meanings.
