Maurizio Cattelan Dissects Cycle of Life at Pirelli HangarBicocca

By Eunice Chan

July 12, 2021

Maurizio Cattelan’s “Breath Ghost Blind” explores the cycle of life in relation to the fragile and vulnerable nature of humanity. On view July 15, 2021, through February 20, 2022, at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan, Italy, curated by Roberta Tenconi and Vicente Todolí, the site-specific show offers a narrative in stages of the brief existence of human beings.

Cattelan delves into themes such as death, love, destiny, solitude, absence, and failure in his practice. For over thirty years, the artist begins his creative process of each piece with an image and extends from the reaction it provokes. “The images I find most interesting are those that I don’t understand,” said Cattelan. He is attracted to the ambiguity present in visual and contemporary experiences.

A volume of essays by Francesco Bonami and Nancy Spector will be released together with Marsilio Editori to accompany “Breath Ghost Blind.” The publication includes a conversation between the artist and the exhibition curators, as well as an extensive photo catalog of works on display.

Eight episodes of Bidibidobidiboo, a radio program by Nicolas Ballario, are also airing as a preview of the exhibition. Guest speakers, including Francesco Bonami, Massimo De Carlo, and Charley Vezza, discuss the world of Maurizio Cattelan through his seminal works.
