Art InstallationsArt has been with humanity since the beginning of time. It’s an innate passion and talent. This is the reason companies such as Clocate designed an online directory for both organizers and participants to search for various events near their area.

However, some artists took their passion and freedom of expression to a level that caused controversies worldwide.

Brownnosing by David Černý

In 2003, at the Futura Gallery in Prague, David Černý, a famous sculptor known for carving odd and lurid pieces, showcased his work Brownnosing. This large-scale installation features the bottom half of a person bent forward, with videos portraying a local politician and artist feeding each other. This artwork comes with Queen’s song titled “We Are The Champions” playing in the background.

The proper way to view the piece is to climb a ladder attached to the backside of the sculpture and look into it.

All by Maurizio Cattelan

Maurizio Cattelan, an art provocateur, debuted his art collection called “All” at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, on display from November 2011 until January 2012. He presented his art from the ceiling, on platforms, instead of the usual manner.

According to the New York Times, it was one of the oddest and most audacious presentations they have witnessed in over half a century. They said he hung several thousand pounds worth of premium quality art collected globally. He used cables to suspend the pieces and fastened them to heavy-duty aluminum truss. Installed 90 feet in the air, the artworks were located just below the glass dome of the museum.

La Nona Ora was one of the infamous pieces. This is a wax sculpture of Pope John Paul II hit by a meteor.
