Maurizio Cattelan (1970 - )


Padua (Italy), 1970. Lives and works in NewYork and Milan. "I ´ve never had ideas. Artists don't have ideas. The figure of the inspired creator seeking new depths of emotion is just a stereotype, a bad romance. Ideas, if they come, are born out of a continuing practice. Ideas are dialectical short circuits."
