Cattelan – Paperon de Paperoni
Cattelan (Paperon de Paperoni) is an art box that makes part of “Classiche Contaminazioni” collection.
In a time in which the noblest of values have been depleted by cynicism and inconsistent values are passed off as absolute truths, what is left to express love for art?
G + G suggest with delicate irony, the juxtaposition between the authority of the masterpieces and the carefree lightness of the most popular icons of our childhood: the cartoon characters break into the contexts of the great masterpieces like children into the lives of adults; their desire to play and to surprise creates a cheerful infiltration that upexpectedly shifts the composure of the works of art. With ironic intelligence G + G create theatrical representations, almost opera buffa, in which from behind the fun their deep and passionate declaration of love for art shines through.
