1. There is one account of Michelangelo’s departure from Rome that suggests that the Pope became angry with Michelangelo because he would not let him see any of his work on the Sistine Chapel. Apparently, the Pope once bribed Michelangelo’s apprentices to allow him to enter and see the Sistine Chapel. Since then, the Sistine Chapel has been visited by millions of people, and full-scale reproduction has been recreated endlessly through different mechanical techniques. ‘Untitled’ (2018), specifically conceived by @mauriziocattelan for #TheArtistIsPresent , replicates through painting the Sistine Chapel in a 1:6 scale. The masterpiece by Michelangelo is made accessible on a human scale and allows everyone to see the Sistine Chapel nearer and without any limitation. Can a masterpiece travel to us instead of we having to travel to it? Could the copy be a masterpiece itself and why? Can the copy save us from a museum-like world where art pieces become objects to which the observer has no longer a vital relationship, objects that are in the process of dying? If humanity’s maximum aspiration is to become God, the maximum aspiration of the copy is to become the original. Truth is that, between these walls, even the Pope can be handier to God. | 2. Eternity’ by Xu Zhen @xuzhenmadein. In this piece bodhisattvas and other religious figures were stacked and attached by their necks to statues of the Parthenon. According to the artist, if you accept your own civilization, will you be able to realize that civilization has no boundaries. The exhibit will run until December 16 at the Yuz Museum in Shanghai. #AlessandroMichele @mauriziocattelan Discover more through link in bio.

At the exhibit curated by @mauriziocattelan , the culture of copying has nothing to do with revolutionary discontinuities and doesn’t identify a then-time and a now-time, but rather with a today that is nothing but yesterday reprocessed, changed and transformed. | 3. A mixed media work by @wimdelvoye ‘Cloaca N° 5’ bringing together extremes of highbrow and lowbrow culture, replicating the human digestive system.
