Superdoodle have created some animation snippets for the feature documentary 'Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back' by film director Maura Axelrod.
This clip is named ‘Turno Subito’.
One of the most provocative and elusive figures in contemporary art, Cattelan catapulted to worldwide notoriety in 1999 by The Ninth Hour, a sculpture of Pope John Paul II toppled by a meteorite. His work has bordered on criminal activity (breaking into a gallery and stealing another artist's work) and regularly defies good taste - ‘Him’ features Hitler in prayer and sold for a whopping £12,000,000. Building his career on evasion, trickery and subversion, Cattelan is perhaps not the most reliable of interviewees, but ex-girlfriends, family members, collectors and dealers build a compelling and intimate portrait of an enigmatic figure. New York based director Maura Axelrod's equally playful profile leaves no stone unturned in trying to answer the question: who is Maurizio Cattelan?
