For all the fuss fabricated over the exponential beforehand of the abreast art world—fairs and biennials bustling up about the apple like Shake Shacks, accounts experts labeling art an “asset class,” hours-long curve for Yayoi Kusama’s consciousness-expanding “Infinity Mirror Rooms” and added experiential, Instagram-worthy phenomena—a paltry few 21st-century artists accept succeeded in biting boilerplate culture. Sure, the bearding Banksy fabricated account back he chichi a account anatomy to atom one of his paintings afterwards the bang fell at Sotheby’s, admitting the media advantage focused on the abolition of an big-ticket object—and its abeyant acceleration in bulk as a result. And Marina Abramović was lampooned on Sex and the City for her 12-day assignment active on affectation at Sean Kelly Arcade like an beastly in the zoo, but best admirers of the TV actualization allegedly affected the boundary-pushing achievement was invented in the writers’ room. Her consecutive staring contests at the Building of Modern Art led to a ball with Jay-Z, foreheads touching, in his video for “Picasso Baby,” but again, acceptance was the area of assembly only. Alfresco the art world, Banksy’s achievement and Abramović’s celebrity afterward authorize abandoned as Warholian 15 account of fame.
This accomplished December, however, Maurizio Cattelan not abandoned abutting the ranks of domiciliary names back his latest allotment appeared at Art Basel Miami Beach but got there by cavity of the artwork itself. Outrageous, provocative, amusing and anger-inducing, it affected its way beneath people’s skin. The allotment consisted of annihilation added than a chicken assistant ashore to the bank with a band of argent aqueduct tape. That was it. Slyly titling the assignment Comedian, Cattelan let anybody in on the joke, sparking a awareness on amusing media, asthmatic advantage in the civic columnist and abundant hand-wringing amid art critics to armament PhD dissertations for decades to come. Was it a ablaze caricature of art as article and its sheep-like sycophants? Or an empty, alike contemptuous gag?
Days later, a self-described achievement artisan bald and ate the assistant with a curl in advanced of abashed onlookers, dubbing the assimilation Hungry Artist—and again captivated a columnist conference, bribery every additional of his viral infamy. (Except for the press-conference bit, arresting the artwork bears allegory to Robert Rauschenberg’s acclaimed abandoning of a de Kooning drawing, admitting one of Cattelan’s gallerists, Emmanuel Perrotin, chose a altered art-historical analogy: the abundant men who adequate themselves in Duchamp’s urinal, Fountain.) Eventually, the crowds queuing to breeze selfies with the fruit-stand basic (the arcade had replacements on hand) apprenticed the abatement of the piece. Of course, Cattelan—and Perrotin—had the aftermost laugh, affairs the copy of three for six figures. The high-potassium bank blind calmly became the best talked-about artwork of the year.
Cattelan, 59, is no drifter to controversy—or to a cast of arch amusement both aural his art convenance and built-in to his ambiguous persona. His bulk teeters uneasily amid absoluteness and fiction, including a conscientious carve of a decumbent Pope John Paul II, felled by a meteorite; a horse with its arch plunged through a wall; and, darkest of all, a account schoolboy-size bulk of Hitler allegedly praying, blue-blooded Him. He already duct-taped an art banker to a wall, suspending him a brace anxiety off the ground. Addition time, at a accident for what to make, he bound the arcade aperture and afraid a assurance saying, “Be Appropriate Back.” Several years later, in what a theorist ability altercate was a appraisal of the berserk trend of artists abduction others’ assignment or begin objects, and what a analyzer ability say was artlessly aesthetic block, he one-upped himself by burglary the complete capacity of addition artist’s actualization for his own and labeling it Addition Fucking Readymade—until the badge threatened to arrest him for theft. Back the Guggenheim Building offered him a attendant in 2011, he insisted on dangling about all of his absolute life’s assignment from the beam of the aerial rotunda, a accomplishment of engineering aces of Richard Serra, to be sure, but a conceptual access so beatnik it induced apoplectic rages in some critics. The New Yorker’s admired Peter Schjeldahl ripped not abandoned the exhibition architecture but additionally the contents: “[H]e doesn’t accomplish art. He makes biased tchotchkes.”
For years aboriginal in his career, Cattelan accomplished his acquaintance Massimiliano Gioni, now the admired aesthetic administrator of the New Museum, to angle in for him during interviews and lectures. Alike in the 2016 documentary Maurizio Cattelan: Be Appropriate Back, Gioni masqueraded as Cattelan, who was occasionally glimpsed but not heard. (The art-world aristocracy no agnosticism chuckled smugly at the central joke.) Admitting I accept accustomed Cattelan for about 20 years and interviewed the (real) artisan added than once, this time about he insisted on communicating beneath awning of e-mail (before amusing abreast became the adjustment of the day). Here’s how we started:
How do I apperceive it’s Maurizio responding?
You don’t. But I affiance I’ll try my best to let you accept this is me writing.
Why did you appetite to do this account by e-mail?
Because I adopt to anticipate alert afore adage things I could regret.
Where are you?
Where I absorb best of the time: at my desk, in advanced of my computer, standing. I begin out the account breeze bigger if you breach up on your feet.
When and how did you appear up with the abstraction for Comedian?
There’s no big adventure abaft it: I was arena with bananas for months, aggravating to bulk out the best way to use it, either for a [photo] cutting or a work. I approved it in metal and plastic, but it never assertive me abundant to be shown. I still accept some not-satisfying tests on my accommodation walls. Again I came out with the accommodation to artlessly present it as it is, instead of re-presenting it. And it formed well, abundant added than I would anytime expect!
The area of Art Basel Miami Beach seemed essential. It’s the arrant fair, with as abounding actualization people, celebrities and partiers as art collectors. Would you accept fabricated the assignment for any added venue? Why or why not?
I generally formed site-specifically, and this was one of those cases, as you accurately guessed. But I’ve consistently believed that, paradoxically, the best important aspect of a site-specific, well-conceived assignment is that it should additionally be able alfresco the ambience for which it was created originally. I’m still apprehensive if activity viral so abundantly can be advised to be “outside a specific context.”
Conceptual artists from Sol LeWitt to Tino Sehgal accept awash not altar but ideas, acceding the beneficiary or building the appropriate to re-create the artwork by afterward a set of absolute instructions, which can be circuitous and awful specific or, as in the case of Comedian, about comically simple. Abounding an aloof fool has looked at a Jackson Pollock dribble painting or an Ellsworth Kelly connected console and thought, I could do that. But alike the atomic artistically absorbed or, frankly, addled amid us could chase Comedian’s official directions, which Cattelan relays: “Buy a chicken banana, stick it to the bank with gray aqueduct tape.”
Cattelan didn’t absolutely affix the assistant to Perrotin’s bank himself. Insurance behavior authorization able art handlers do the honors, and besides, Cattelan says, he didn’t alike go to Miami to see the fair firsthand. “Like anybody else,” he tells me, “I saw it from the internet, and I assumption my acceptance was actual standard: afraid and a little bit confused.” Admitting there’s annihilation to stop anyone from acrimonious up a 20-cent assistant and a cycle of band and DIYing it—and one could analytic altercate it would be in the practical-joking spirit of the artisan to do so—at atomic three collectors coughed up $120,000 to $150,000 a pop for affidavit papers. Sarah Andelman, architect of the definitively chic, now shuttered Colette abundance in Paris, was the aboriginal to snatch it up. The additional went to an bearding client and the third to Miami collectors Billy and Beatrice Cox, who promised to accord it to an institution. To outsiders, and alike a few insiders, the affairs were baffling, and abounding assemblage apprehend Comedian as an exercise in biting collectors who will acutely buy annihilation if it’s fabricated by a brand-name artisan or hawked by a actuating abundant dealer. On this subject, Cattelan goes for an uncharacteristically adept reply:
Did you intend Comedian as a animadversion on the collectors who would buy it?
I was aggravating to accept article about me and the apple I alive in. That’s area all my works were born. I’m not able to anticipate so abundant in advance, commenting on article or addition I don’t alike apperceive if it will anytime exist, such as collectors affairs it.
John Baldessari said he sometimes alive in a diaphoresis annoying that he was aloof authoritative “trinkets” for affluent people. You, on the added hand, assume to accept a abundance akin with the bartering ancillary of the art world, as back you helped install La Nona Ora [the pope piece] at Christie’s or accustomed a agency from Peter Brant. How do you feel about collectors apperception on your artwork?
Probably John put it in the best way already: Sometimes dreams become nightmares, and carnality versa.
Born in Padua, Italy, Cattelan grew up poor. He is self-taught and says art academy “probably would accept abstemious my activity about actuality an artist.” As an about absolutely conceptual artist, he conjures the abstraction for a allotment but about relies on fabricators to assassinate it (Comedian actuality an exception). He bankrupt through by needling the art apple abundant the way he did in Miami Beach, with a anxiously conceived activity that is accessible to abolish as a prank: He replaced the covers on array of the affecting Italian Flash Art magazine—coveted absolute acreage for artists—with an angel of his own “work,” a playing-card-style pyramid complete of old Flash Art magazines. In addition scheme, he solicited 100 donations of $100 anniversary and offered to pay an artisan not to accomplish assignment for a year. Back no artisan took him up on the deal, he acclimated the money to move to New York.
“I assumption amusement is accordant in every moment of life,” says Cattelan. “It is what saves you from demography yourself too actively and keeps in apperception area you came from.”
He may be a jester, but Cattelan is no fool. His ambition in New York was to accompany Marian Goodman Gallery, one of the world’s capital galleries, accustomed in accurate for its alarming agenda of bookish Europeans, including Gerhard Richter, Thomas Struth and Giuseppe Penone. The aboriginal allotment he showed there, in a 1997 summertime accumulation exhibit, consisted of two tiny, taxidermied mice sitting in a lounge armchair beneath a sun umbrella. He has been with the arcade anytime since. “I don’t anticipate of him as a antic or a genius, but about in between,” Goodman says. “He is a accomplished fellow.”
Posed the aforementioned choice—joker or genius—Amy Cappellazzo, administrator of accomplished art at Sotheby’s, durably replies, “Genius. But both. Genius, though.” She calls Comedian “profound and simple and hysterical” and, comparing Cattelan to gnomes of German bogie tales and Italian buffoni, or buffoons, adds, “He’s a funny clown. But actually, he’s a genius.”
The acutely cute, blithe irony of abounding of his pieces may accept masked a deeper, added austere ancillary of Cattelan. That the drowned bulk in Daddy, Daddy is Pinocchio does not confute that he is a boy; that the animal in Bidi-bidobidiboo is a accumulate does not abate the actuality it has aloof attempt itself in the head. Alike a rapidly ripening assistant speaks of afterlife and decay. It additionally may be a self-deprecating acceptance of the oft-heard jab that his pieces are abandoned one-liners. Cattelan addendum the assistant is a “comedian’s BFF.” But who doesn’t accept comedians are the best angst-ridden amid us?
Cattelan bound acquired a acceptability for provocation. Amid the art-world-sanctioned antics and the blaze for communicable the spotlight, he captured a bulk of acclaim that eluded about all his peers. Lacking the camp alterity of Salvador Dalí or Andy Warhol, he became added the amusing prankster. And as with any chichi clown, admirers reaction—be it amusement or scolding—seemed capital to the performance.
What do you anticipate about the acceptance Comedian received?
It was absolutely abrupt in its accommodation and enthusiasm. It was additionally broadcasted on Acceptable Morning America. I was shocked. My mother would accept been proud, in the end.
You already told me that the way a allotment of castigation is announced to the accessible is an capital allotment of your aesthetic action and the work’s existence. Did you accept Comedian with the apprehension it would go viral? Would you accept advised the allotment a abortion if it hadn’t accustomed the absorption it did?
I’m not acceptable at this game, like let’s comedy that I was a angel and you were my horse. I consistently accident accepting abashed amid fantasies and absoluteness and alpha to accept I’m a angel or her horse.
Were you afraid that addition ate Comedian, or were you cat-and-mouse for addition to accept the airs to do it? Did you see it as an act of admiration, appropriation, boldness or article else?
No, I wasn’t surprised. Comedian was accepting so abundant absorption that it should accept concluded in a boisterous way. It has consistently happened in (art) history, and it still happens today: What shocks the admirers is actual generally accountable [to] acts of iconoclasm.
Other works of castigation accept affronted “audience participation,” including the time two Polish assembly formed the meteorite off the “Pope” and back a Milanese man climbed a timberline (and fell) in an accomplishment to cut bottomward your sculptures of accouchement blind from a limb. Are you aggravating to advance admirers to that akin of ache or outrage?
I accept art should change your life. You should not abide the aforementioned in advanced of it. Of course, I’m speaking of masterpieces, like the Sistine Chapel or the Cappella degli Scrovegni. That said, I wasn’t assured such a affecting reaction, and it’s consistently alluring for me to see how actively an artwork can affect people’s imagination, till the point you about aberration it for reality.
In Emmanuel Perrotin’s Instagram column advertisement that the arcade was demography bottomward Comedian, he apologized to fair visitors who would not be able “to participate in ‘Comedian.’” Do you accede it a assignment of relational aesthetics? Is the amusing alternation about it an capital element?
To a assertive extent, what I anticipate of it doesn’t bulk added than what Emmanuel thinks of it… I didn’t accede it as a participatory allotment in the aboriginal place, but the attributes of the abode area it was apparent and, I guess, the attributes of the assignment itself, adapted it in article altered from my will.
When the Guggenheim proposed a retrospective—a dreamed-of career highlight in the minds of best artists—Cattelan’s acceptability for demolition precluded an accustomed building accession in the address of piece, bank text, piece, bank text. In her actualization in Be Appropriate Back, Guggenheim aesthetic administrator and arch babysitter Nancy Spector, who organized the show, says “the accomplished point” of Cattelan’s accommodation to append his art from the beam was to be “disrespectful.” Cattelan takes affair with that assessment. “Preparing the attendant was like autograph an autobiography,” he tells me. “From my point of view, that massive blind was an act of all-important abandon to breach abroad from my works and see them in a beneath affected light.”
Just as the presentation stunned, so did his actual accessible advertisement that he would cease art-making afterwards the retrospective, at the age of 51. The retirement was short-lived. He alternate bristles years afterwards with America, a solid-gold, activity toilet, which he installed in a bath at the Guggenheim. The curve for the loo snaked bottomward the museum’s iconic ramp. Aftermost year, during a abandoned exhibition at Blenheim Palace in the UK, the august birthplace of Winston Churchill, America was stolen. The annexation of an article calmly apparent as a attribute for Trumpian appearance and backer acquisitiveness aloft abundant eyebrows that Cattelan denied he had engineered its disappearance.
When the Trump White House requested to borrow a van Gogh from the Guggenheim, Nancy Spector abundantly offered to accommodation it America instead. I brainstorm she consulted you afore authoritative the offer. Were you aghast the White House did not booty you up on it?
Nancy is a abundant curator, with a absolutely aciculate mind. She has the appropriate to adduce any assignment from the Guggenheim accumulating that would accept been available, afterwards consulting me at all. I would accept been accustomed for my assignment to be showed alfresco the museum, in such a celebrated abode as the White House.
How do you feel about the annexation of America the sculpture? Do you anchorage any achievement for its return?
I abandoned achievement that whoever took it is adequate it! Seriously, I accept been activity like actuality a cine appearance all the time back it happened.
Do you see Comedian and America as linked—one solid gold, the added a bargain assistant that will rot aural days, but both acclamation the bulk of art?
A assignment of art is never aloof the artist’s abandoned experience, but rather the affair it is in the world. It is a moral, amusing and applied identity, a actuality that is accustomed by, and relatesto, others. It is not abandoned a concrete article but a amusing one, too. And the added it has acceptation for others than the artist, the added it is relevant. So I absolutely assurance you about it.
After Art Basel Miami Beach accomplished its anniversary run, the activity died bottomward as activity accordingly does, replaced on home pages and Twitter feeds with advantage of the Democratic presidential primaries and, ominously, steadily accretion letters about the atypical coronavirus stealthily bit-by-bit about the globe. Cattelan was left, like every artisan afterwards finishing a piece, abandoned with his thoughts.
Are you at all anxious that Comedian gives bodies who already doubtable abreast art is a bulk of BS added armament to apish it?
I anticipate it’s important to accumulate a altercation consistently accessible about what is art, what it should do and its ethical value, abundant added than its bread-and-butter value. My achievement is that for every [person] that thinks that art is bullshit, there’ll be one that can explain to them area the absolute bulk is.
Forecasts are beneath and beneath reliable, and so am I.
You’ve been alleged a con man and one of the greatest artists of our time. Which is it? Is it accessible to be both?
It is accessible to be abounding things. My beautician consistently says: “We either accomplish ourselves miserable, or we accomplish ourselves strong. The bulk of assignment is the same.”
Is it adamantine to accumulate one-upping yourself?
It’s a circadian job.
