Maurizio Cattelan, W(tf?) Magazine and the Artist Matthieu Lavanchy

(Digital Collage, Peter Combe, 2010: Cattelan snooping around Lavancy’s work for inspiration)

.

In February of this past year I wrote a post entitled omaggio? in which two very similar photographs were placed side by side. One photograph had no author attributed to it, the other photograph was featured in Maurizio Cattelan’s portfolio (Photographed by PierPaolo Ferrari, Styled by Camilla Nickerson, Curated by Dennis Freedmanin) for the November 2009 edition of W Magazine. The similarities of the two images were striking, so striking in fact, it lead me to believe that some serious poaching had gone on. A couple of weeks ago I discovered the beautiful work of Switzerland based artist Matthieu Lavanchy and was stunned to see that he was the artist responsible for the original.

Matthieu Lavanchy is a selected finalist in the Festival International de Mode et de Photographie, Hyères 2010. Mr. Schulmann or the Man in the High Castle (series) will be exhibited in Villa Noailles from April 30 to May 30, 2010. He lives and works in Switzerland.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Maurizio Cattelan’s work. Maurizio Cattelan is @MISTYGARDINER on Twitter.
