Pleased to meet you #3, 2017
Text by Claire Le Restif and conversation between Dorothy Iannone and Maurizio Cattelan
To present the artist as a rock star perfectly captures the ambition of this deluxe fanzine, whose third opus celebrates an artist, whose immense prestige approaches that of a goddess. Since the 1960s, Dorothy Iannone has delivered a liberating and fascinating body of work where the intimate couples with the universal and self-realization harmonizes with the great mythological narrative. In a disarmingly candid tone, the drawings from her (Ta)Rot Pack (previously unpublished and featured here in their integrality) resonate with an ardent message of love and a salutary hedonistic philosophy.
"Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name: Dorothy Iannone."
