These 500 latex masks are self-portraits of the artist, all different.

This work questions identity and cloning with the characteristic derision of Maurizio Cattelan, who creates sculptures and situations that are often provocative and unusual. Regularly featuring himself in his own work, he attacks archetypes and powerful figures of history, while leaving his pieces open to interpretation.
