Numéro : What criteria did you use when selecting the works to be shown at the Monnaie de Paris?
Maurizio Cattelan : Like many events in a career, it started out as a completely different project. But if life is not always linear, neither are exhibitions. At the very beginning, a solo show was not part of my plan, but then I realized I could stay behind the scenes and direct a new editing of some of my works. It’s an interesting experiment. It’s like listening to a group of individual voices that slowly intone, and in the end become a real chorus.
“ I tend to flee tragedies – usually via the emergency exit.” Maurizio Cattelan
