Palimpsest I

With A Little Help From His Replicators

Maurizio Cattelan (b. 1960) - Untitled, 2002

The Little Artists - Maurizio Cattelan's La Ballata di Trotsky (The Ballad of Trotsky), 1996

'You see, all art has now become completely a game by which man distracts himself; and you may say it has always been like that, but now it's entirely a game. And I think that that is the way things have changed, and what is fascinating now is that it's going to become much more difficult for the artist, because he must really deepen the game to be any good at all.'

Francis Bacon
