Maurizio Cattelan experiments with Robotor, the robot that carves marble better than Michelangelo

Maurizio Cattelan is reportedly working on a conceptual artwork created, in terms of material execution, by a powerful robot that sculpts in marble. The physical action does not detract from the idea-project, which remains that of the artist. Moreover, even in the past, think of Canova, the sculptor would create drawings and a model, from which studio assistants and sculptors would produce the work.
