We were ready to forget him but he did not give us a chance to do so : the provocative italian artist Maurizio Cattelan chose to choke again his public while exhibiting again his Ballata di Trotski at Louis Vuitton’s foundation last summer. This artwork, literally a (naturalised) horse suspended to the ceiling is meant to embody the failing of the communist utopia theorized by Leon Trotsky during Lenin’s reign. Released in 1996, the artwork provoqued a tsunami of indignation among the contemporary art critic’s world, and its effect is not diminished, judging by a public still not used to Cattelan’s queer love for taxidermy.
