Not Afraid of Love; Maurizio Cattelan at the Monnaie de Paris

Not Afraid of Love; Maurizio Cattelan at the Monnaie de Paris

Irreverent, cool, witty, funny, serious, provocative, cynical, sophomoric, the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan both fulfils and defies expectations. Although known throughout the world for his satirical sculptures, the artist’s work is often difficult to classify. Five years ago, at the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum in New York, Cattelan presented a major retrospective of his work. It seemed to constitute the climax of a dazzling career, comprised of works that sprang from their times, replete with scandal, profundity, impact and humour. But this supposed last hurrah was simply another manifestation of the artist’s irreverence. Five years later, Maurizio Cattelan is back. He has chosen the Monnaie de Paris (Paris Mint) for his most important exhibition in Europe so far. The unforgettable imagery of the works is exhibited in the 18th century salons of the Monnaie de Paris. An effigy of Maurizio Cattelan, and the art of staging, are the beating heart of the exhibition, as he asks the tongue-in-cheek metaphysical question, “Is there life before death?”
