The most iconic moment of the first decade of the 21st century now has a permanent home. Alright, that’s a bit hyperbolic, but its true for us soccer fans, eh? Zizou’s flesh and blood takedown/ dissection of Marco Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup finals is embodied in a resin remake by Algerian sculptor Adel Abdessemed in an exhibition that recently concluded at the David Zwirner art gallery in New York. It’s part of an exhibition titled “Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf?” built around the themes of war, violence, and spectatorship.
Marco Materazzi is part of Inter who no one seems to be afraid of anymore nowadays. Here is more info on the exhibition >>
