Description : L.O.V.E.

Multiple in concrete. Seletti limited edition, dated 2014, presented in original wooden box. It is a 1:28 scale reproduction of the famous installation by Maurizio Cattelan in Piazza Affari in Milan. The original installation, created in 2010, which seems to depict an obscene gesture, has a precise meaning: the acronym that entitles it means Freedom, Hate, Revenge, Eternity and actually depicts a hand stretched out in the fascist salute with four severed fingers, therefore understood as a gesture of irreverence towards the fascist symbol. Maurizio Cattelan is currently the most highly rated living Italian artist; his works are shown in all the museums of the world. Starting from twentieth-century avant-gardism, with a critical approach, Cattelan in his works blends life and art, reality and fantasy together; with the passage of time, his actions become more and more sensationalistic and mass-media, aiming to "say" the avant-garde, but "show" the impossibility of it, making the avant-garde meet with nihilism. His works arouse a smile at first glance, but at the same time disturb the viewer, prompting him to reflect. The themes hidden in the artist's works are serious and profound: death, love, the meaning of life, failure. In several works he uses stuffed or fake animals, mannequins and wax plastic statues. The artist has also represented himself in some of his works. L

It is difficult to define what Contemporary Art is, because it does not correspond to a time period or to a unique and specific artistic current. According to the subdivision of art into historical periods, the period of Contemporary Art would begin in 1789, at the end of Modern Art, and with the introduction to that century, the nineteenth, which sees the appearance of a new and revolutionary, Photography, and that begins to search for a different way of looking at reality and representing it, in particular with Impressionism, which chooses to mediate the vision of reality with the filter of feelings that it evokes. On the other hand, the whole twentieth century is permeated by the rise of numerous pictorial currents, which try to interpret the demands of the present using new means of production and adapting to the times and ways of life and which filter reality through feelings, intimist visions. , metaphysical interpretations, generating different multiple pictorial currents. Therefore, many believe that contemporary art is that mode of artistic expression that tends to involve new means of expression that range from performance, photography, installation, video, digital processing, to text, thus starting from some currents. avant-garde of the twentieth century and reaching up to the present day. But be careful: to date, in any century, a wide representation of artists has never disappeared in artistic pictorial production who have chosen to remain faithful to the most traditional pictorial technique, as well as to the representation of reality in the most consistent and objective way possible, which therefore can be considered Contemporary only in a more temporal sense, that is because they lived in the last decades of the current historical period.
