Maurizio Cattelan, All @ Guggenheim New York in 2011/2012
All, is a collection of work he has done since 1989–sculptures, works on paper, photographs and prints–that wisely uses the interior open space of the museum, hanging the pieces from the ceiling in an intricate weave. Creating a massive beautiful piece on its own, the way the pieces are arranged, like puppets in a grand show, makes for a dramatic scene and emphasizes the variety and yet interconnected thread of subversion that occurs throughout his various pieces.
It’s called the ‘Lykoi’. Due to a genetic mutation in a domestic shorthair cat, the Lykoi has no hair around its eyes, nose, ears and muzzle, giving it a werewolfish appearance.
Peng Wei born 1974 is a contemporary Chinese artist from Sichuan, China.
She is best known for her delicate ink color paintings on silk and paper which are executed by her in a modern style. Combining imagery of traditional literati painting with modern forms and expressions of everyday life, Peng Wei’s art not only commemorates a bygone era of the scholarly tradition but also represents the subtle elegance and refinement of contemporary culture.
Her works have been invited to be exhibited widely in Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Beijing and are held in international private collections. She currently lives and works in Beijing.
