Artwork Title: Untitled (Manhole) - Artist Name: Maurizio Cattelan

Untitled (Manhole)

Maurizio Cattelan, 2001

"This life size sculpture is a self portrait. The artist looks up through a hole in the floor. We can see the room below, which appears to be a storage room but is in fact the staff cloakroom. Here Cattelan plays a convincing game with reality and imitation, undermining the viewer's expectations."
