Dieter Roth, A glass jar containing flies collected by the artist from his legendary work Staple Cheese (A Race), 1970

“We wanted to make a work about Internet’s overflowing creativity vs. high art fixation with originality. We found a cat meme collage circulating online, and we ended up making this fake sculpture by art-star Maurizio Cattelan […] The piece has been exhibited at Inman Gallery Annex, in Houston, TX, for a month now as a work by Cattelan.”
