A 1:28 reproduction of one of Maurizio Cattelan’s most discussed sculptures in Milan’s Piazza Affari in front of the Italian stock exchange building, this work features a male hand supported by a pedestal. All of the fingers of the hand are cut off, except for the middle one, taking on a sarcastic stance.

Maurizio Cattelan’s (Italian, b. 1960) practice explores the humorous and the dark with a particular inclination towards the taboo and the sacrilegious. He often cites works from art history’s past to relate a pity and comedic outlook on some of contemporary society’s most apparent hesitations. His works draw on comedic gesture, and bizarre proportion, as a means to recontextualize and reconsider their surroundings.
