Kendall Jenner embodies iconic artworks by Maurizio Cattelan for GARAGE Magazine cover
In a new portfolio for the magazine’s 18th issue, Cattelan collaborates with photographer Campbell Addy to revisit some of the artist's most provocative works, starring Jenner.

NEW YORK, NY.- GARAGE Magazine recently revealed the cover of its eighteenth issue, featuring a collaboration between American model Kendall Jenner, Italian conceptual artist Maurizio Cattelan, and ascendent British-Ghanian fashion photographer Campbell Addy. Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief Mark Guiducci, GARAGE’s latest issue continues its tradition of pairing the boldest names in contemporary culture, resulting in unique collaborations between artists, photographers, actors, models, musicians, dancers, writers, and thinkers.

Known for his playful and confrontational provocations towards institutions of power, Cattelan’s oeuvre is a satirical commentary on the contradictions and absurdities of Western civilization. In the latest issue of GARAGE, the theme of which is Unhinged, Cattelan revisits some of his most iconic works in an editorial starring Jenner, a model even more famous than the artist’s $120,000 duct-taped banana, which catapulted Cattelan to viral notoriety during Art Basel Miami Beach 2019. Titled Comedian, the readymade sculpture was an immediate cause célèbre, inspiring outrage, meme accounts, and “In Defense Of…” articles in newspapers around the world.

“In retrospect, the banana episode seems like a way to think about everything from fake news to viral fame to institutional distrust to wealth inequality,” said GARAGE Editor-in-Chief Mark Guiducci. “In the way that Jeff Koons was the artist of the glittery neon aughts, Maurizio Cattelan is the artist of our dystopian era. Like it or not.”

The cover depicts Jenner in the image of Cattelan’s lifelike wax bust of American supermodel Stephanie Seymour positioned to resemble a ship’s figurehead, and is accompanied by a fashion editorial starring Jenner in various vignettes inspired by Cattalan’s work. Scenes include a reinterpretation the artist’s infamous piece in which he duct-taped his gallerist to a gallery wall, reimagined with Jenner as the artist and photographer Campbell Addy assuming the role of gallerist; a series of pigeon-themed photographs alluding to the artist’s installation at the 54th Venice Biennale; and various scenarios in which Jenner is suspended from the ceiling and mounted to the wall, as if she were one of Cattelan’s taxidermied horses.

Jenner and Cattalan join the magazine’s ranks of star-lit cover collaborations, including Zendaya by artist Simone Leigh; Billie Eilish by artist Takashi Murakami; Rihanna by artist Deana Lawson; Amy Adams as Andy Warhol; Beyoncé by artist Urs Fischer; and Binx Walton, Cara Delevigne, and Anja Rubik by Jeff Koons, among others.
