Artist Koen Vanmechelen can show his work in Firenze, next to Caravaggio: “Party in my head”

Vanmechelen looks proud and satisfied when he can show the expo for the first time. Until the last moment, the museum asked for secrecy: “This is causing a party in my head, of course. During the pandemic, I immersed myself for 2 years in making works in marble and glass. Eike Schmidt, the director of the Uffizi, saw these works in Venice and wanted to show them here. This is the result of 30 years of artistry, a kind of recognition that you never expect. In addition, a self-portrait remains in the collection of the Uffizi. That makes you think that you consists.”
