Maurizio Cattelan

Untitled, 1991 

Police report of stolen invisible artwork, 11 x 8 ¼ inches

Unable to produce a work for an exhibition, Cattelan decided the night before the opening to go to the nearest police station and report the theft of the non-existent work. With some persuasion, a policeman eventually diligently typed the legal report. The report has been framed and installed in the gallery.

Quem me vê assim sorrindo, nem imagina que todas as noites vou dormir chorando pelo mesmo motivo.
