Maurizio Cattelan takes over the vast spaces of the Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan with “Breath Ghosts Blind,” an exhibition in three large movements with existentialist overtones. Between darkness and light, three in-situ works emerge successively. First, Breath (2021), a sculpture in Carrara marble representing a man lying in a fetal position next to a dog. Next, Ghosts (2021), a swarm of stuffed pigeons, half worrying, half scolding, clustered on the metal beams of the old industrial factory. Finally, Blind (2021), a dark and monumental column pierced by an airliner. Truly immersive, this journey, evoking the cycle of life, invites introspection.
