Maurizio Cattelan

b. 1960

Nothing is sacred to Maurizio Cattelan, the art world’s resident jokester who has been variously amusing and horrifying viewers since the early 1990s.

“My aim is to be as open and as incomprehensible as possible,” he says. “There has to be a perfect balance between open and shut.” A prolific curator and writer outside of his artistic practice, Cattelan is seen by many as one of Duchamp’s greatest contemporary heirs, enacting morbidly humorous transformations on objects and history alike.
