How To Make A White Elephant

Maurizio Cattelan (b. 1960) - Not Afraid of Love, 2004

'In the cultural field, authentic provocation serves to indicate an equally authentic and incurable contradiction. The modern rendition of the tragic is precisely the awareness of the irresolubility of the contradiction, and the impossibility of choice. Instead, the reality we are living today is the neutralisation of all conflict transformed by spectacle.'

Giorgio Vertozzi
