Micha Cattaui

Germany, Cologne Mirko Mayer Gallery / m-projects

Micha Cattaui (CH, 1972) was born in Lausanne, Switzerland, by Egyptian and Greek parents. He works and lives in Athens, Greece. With Micha’s new works, the artist bridges that sense of artistic perfection seen in Ancient Greece and merges it with our modern society of mass consumerism. The result is a collaboration and a conversation between three bodies of works; the sculpture, a “pop” photograph of the sculpture and a museum location shoot where the sculpture is imagined back into “context”. All three items, although based on the same sculpture, allows for a different political expression in each individual artwork.
