We would also draw your careful attention to Andres Serrano's The Morgue (Airplane Crash) (€ 8.000/9.000). This work comprises of a series of photographs aimed to shock its public taken in 1992 in a morgue. Stereometric forms in plaster of Paris created in the 19th Century, to aid students in their understanding of Trigonometry, is the theme used in Mathematical Forms (2004) by Hiroshi Sugimoto. In these gelatin silver prints, the Japanese artist's purpose was to show that it was possible to produce works of art quite unintentionally and that, in fact, the result can be of greater value in these cases (€16.000/18.000). Also considered a sculpture is that of Mussolini's profile by Robert Mapplethorpe. The vintage gelatin silver print was taken in 1988. (€12.000/13.000).
