Maurizio Cattelan

>From February 24th in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam on Maurizio Cattelan gives a scathing commentary on the Old Art collection. A figure crawling out of a hole in the floor – a look-alike of the artist himself, slightly younger though. He is about to crawl out of a hole in the floor of the classics gallery . He looks in a sharp way at a painting of the 19th century master Koekoek. His hands rest in line on the edge of the hole. A lucid lash at the established order in the most literal sense of the word. The obvious solemn authority of the Old Art is ironised in a subtle way. By this gesture the visitor is stimulated to look in an innovative way at what is shown to him, in and outside the museum. Cattelan’s work can be seen in the museum’s permanent setup for the next few years.
