Can contemporary art transform a palace? See how artist Maurizio Cattelan did it.

by Nowness

The most extreme art can be integrated in the most classic interior. A giant pop-art Pinocchio swimming “dead” in a baroque fountain gives a shift to the whole exterior. Even sharing the common culture with such works as a national flag (We’ll Never Die), pope killed with a meteorite (The Ninth Hour), a suspended horse (XX century), or a golden toilet (America), totally re-dimensions the Blenheim Palace, introducing contemporary take on old style. See the legendary Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan as an interior designer with his exposition Victory is Not an Option.
