Kendall Jenner Reinterprets Masterpieces by Cattelan
Supermodel re-imagined as artist’s trophy wife
Art Stuff 03 Apr 2020

The bad-boy of the art world and fashion’s favourite supermodel have teamed up to take over the latest issue of GARAGE Magazine. The epic collaboration between Kendall Jenner and Maurizio Cattelan sees Jenner modelling some of Cattelan’s most iconic artworks, and we are obsessed with it.

UNHINGED ???? KENDALL by CATTELAN, photographed by Campbell Addy⁠ ⁠ For GARAGE Issue 18, Kendall Jenner steps into Maurizio Cattelan's raucous world. @mauriziocattelan has been razzing the art world since well before the duct-taped banana that upended Art Basel Miami Beach last year, spurring any delusions of institution, luxury, or sanctity along the way. In these dire times, his buoyancy provides some perspective, and welcome respite. At the link in bio, GARAGE and @campbelladdy hallucinate Cattelan’s vision, as @kendalljenner—styled by GARAGE’s Fashion Director Gabriella Karefa-Johnson—becomes his unhinged muse.⁠ ⁠ Photographer and Director: @campbelladdy⁠ Fashion Director: @gabriellak_j⁠ Creative Director: @brianphillipsimage⁠ Casting: @itboygregk Hair: @evaniefrausto⁠ Makeup: @erinparsonsmakeup⁠ Manicurist: @honeynailz⁠ Set Designer: @frau.juliawagner⁠ Movement Director: @jordandrobson⁠ DOP: @jaredtaylorchristiansen⁠ Production: Heather Robbins, Maria Strycharz, and @weiliwang83

From posing with pigeons to mimicking the bust of a ship (in a recreation of a work known as “trophy wife”), Jenner proves that she can make anything look good. And, in Cattelan’s first major move since that banana episode at Art Basel Miami last year, the Italian artist has proven that he has no intention of staying away from the headlines just yet.

As a bonus, Jenner and Cattelan answer a string of questions on GARAGE’s website, where we learn that Cattelan never wears underwear and that if Jenner’s style was cooked, it would taste like pasta with truffle sauce. 

From bananas to golden toilets to magazine covers, we’re not sure where Maurizio Cattelan is headed next, but with Kendall Jenner by his side, we’re sure it won’t be long before he’s taking over our news feeds once again.
