"Breath Ghosts Blind" will mark Maurizio Cattelan's return to Milan after more than ten years.
The culmination of a project the artist has been working on for several years, the exhibition symbolically represents the cycle of life and gives the audience an insight into collective and personal history, often poised between hope and failure, matter and spirit, truth and fiction. The site-specific solo show brings together a revised configuration of an historical work with new artworks and will be presented in the immense spaces of the Navate area, transforming them into a monument beyond time.
A monographic publication will accompany "Breath Ghosts Blind". It will include critical essays by Francesco Bonami and Nancy Spector on Cattelan's practice as well as a conversation between the artist and the curators Roberta Tenconi and Vicente Todolí. The volume will also contain a rich photographic documentation of the exhibited artworks along with reflections on themes that emerge in the show through the gaze of philosophers, theologians and writers such as Arnon Grunberg, Andrea Pinotti and Timothy Verdon.
