In Buenos Aires, a city whose history is closely intertwined with the Catholic faith as well as with traditions from across Latin America, Cattelan hopes the fleeting spectacle of an imaginary cemetery will give passersby pause as they reconsider normally discrete categories like the earthly and the otherworldly, the spiritual and the scatological. However, the artist’s goal is not contrarianism for its own sake; rather, by subverting the ancient superstitions and rituals of mourning, he hopes to inspire a kind of exorcism or catharsis. ‘In Italy when you dream of somebody dying, we say you are making their life longer,’ he says. ‘So I hope Eternity will prolong the lives of many people.’
