If by some miracle chance that EMPTY KINGDOM unchained me from my desk and allowed me to travel over seas, I would undoubtedly go straight to Amsterdam to check out Saturno Buttò's
work in person at the upcoming LIAISON Amsterdam
Show in April. It wasn't planned for his EK spotlight to be shown on a Sunday...it just happened to be coincidence that it did, and it seems only right. In many of Buttò's paintings, fetish objects and practices are often placed in a religious context that goes beyond just merely wanting to achieve a shock effect.
