BT-05. Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back
USA, Feature Documentary, 2016, 94 min
“...a captivating excavation of Maurizio Cattelan‘s disruptive career as the art world’s superior prankster of our time...” VOGUE
Italian sculptor Maurizio Cattelan has become a superstar in the art world, with a major retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum. His sculptures—for example, an oversized Pinocchio floating face down in a pool—sell for millions of dollars. In this funny, mind-bending and visually beautiful film, Boulder director Maura Axelrod tries to find the “real” Cattelan, a task that is complicated by the fact that the artist is elusive, to say the least. His 2011 retirement? Not so permanent. Because here he is, back at the Guggenheim, installing a solid-gold working toilet that will be available for use by the general public.
