Art Basel Buenos Aires: Eternity...

00:22

07/09/18 - Maurizio Cattelan’s instalation was finally unveiled yesterday. In spite of the hour (9 pm), it was still possible to see each of the tombstones of this imaginary cemetery of living celebrities and famous people. The entrance and paths were marked with dim lights and decorated with flowers. In a large arch we read the name of the installation: Eternity.

Of the 200 tombstones, some are particularly attractive. The first one is Cattelan’s (Italy, 1960), although it was not done by himself. Then there’s Marta Minujin’s, with the facade of the Parthenon in fluorescent colors, and abstract artist Gachi Hasper’s, which is, of course, a geometric figure.

Others, like Andrés Paredes annd Tomás Sarraceno, collaborated with tombstones for themselves or world known characters. In the opening, everyone wore black, except one: Cattelan had a white jacket and light blue pants.
