Miles Aldridge’s saucy take on Maurizio Cattelan show

Miles Aldridge’s Untitled (after Cattelan) #1 (2016)

The UK photographer Miles Aldridge has teamed up with Maurizio Cattelan, Harland Miller and Gilbert & George for a new series of works; made “after” the aforementioned artists, they are on show at Lyndsey Ingram gallery in London (until 5 January 2018). Aldridge, who is known for his elaborate, highly stylised mise-en-scènes, last year photographed works in a Cattelan exhibition at La Monnaie de Paris, capturing models posed around famous pieces by the artist. “We photographed a model standing over the head of Cattelan. He was a bit naughty, and suggested that she pee on his head,” Aldridge says.
