“Maurizio Cattelan: Some of your sculptures can be pretty scary.
Duane Hanson: Sometimes it’s frightening, some of them are hard to confront. They have a life of their own. They had a life when I made them and now they have to face the world.”
During his long-spanning career Duane Hanson created life-size, hyperrealistic sculptures of commonplace Americans in the throes of everyday life. This oversized exhibition catalogue displays the artist’s single, sprawling work Flea Market Lady (1990) as it appeared at Gagosian Gallery in 2014.
