Boetti gives record, all’asta di New York his «Mappa» is worth 8 million dollars

L’Italia dell’arte sul palcoscenico mondiale. On November 16, 2022, in New York, Sotheby’s presents the important opera by Alighiero Boetti that is always going on. If I try, say a big one Map gives 259 x 580 cm. The estimated value of 8 million dollars, the appraisal pi alta mai posta su un’opera di questo nostro artist. Sar record? Il nuovo millennio has seen growth in the spontaneous manner of the Alighiero Boetti market: 100 euro invested in one of its operations in 2000 and it is worth 1,522. A crescita of +1422%.

I classified him

At the beginning of the millennium it was at 318 post in the classifica of artists pi cari di Artprice, in 2021 all’80. Ancora di pi, dagli anni around 2010 they have not seen it diventare il point of reference for l’Arte Povera, with its richiestissime dai collezionisti opere ei price in constant rise. Ecco an eloquent fact: per trovare il miglior risultato di Boetti antecedent al 2010 bisogna arrivare al número 46 della classifica dei top lot. It was Rosso Gilera 60 1232/Rosso Guzzi 60 1305 (1967), sold for 832 thousand euros from Christie’s in London in 2009. The evident escalation also nei fatturati annuali. If in 2006 the peak was presented with 7 million, dopo in 2010 (11 million) if I saw picchi of 20 million (2014), 18 million (2015) and 19.5 million (2021).

you liked him

Infine il 2021 has definitively consecrated him as a blue-chip artist of livello internazionale

. Setting the world record, he arrived in New York with Sottrazione, a Ricamo dell’82 sold by Christie’s for 3.8 million euros (4.6 million dollars). Poi l’incredibile due giorni (14-15 October 2021) London. Nello spazio di 24 ore Sotheby’s has sold Mappa (1978) at 3.6 million euros and Christie’s another Mappa (1988-1989) at 2.7 million euros. Respectively the second and the third miglior risultato di Boetti all’asta. Ora per sembra giunto il momento di aggiornare classifica. During the Contemporary Evening Auction in New York on November 16, Sotheby’s infatti proposes a Map of monumental dimensions (259 x 580 cm). Nessun’altra opera di grandezza paragonabile mai apparsa in asta, also perch sono verily pochissimi gli exemplari of this type realized by Boetti. Quasi unique also the luminous background avorio its cui poggiano i continenti. Dunque, obviously, l’opera non si mai vista all’incanto. Quanto a esposizioni, according to the important retrospective of 2011, Game Plan, presented at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, at the Reina Sofia in Madrid and at the Tate Modern in London. To consign it to Sotheby’s stata invece the Fondazione Chiara e Francesco Carraro, which has its headquarters in Italy.

The series and the mappe

The sum of 8 million dollars sowed by promoting it will be an announced record.

The series delle Mappe, insieme ai Ricami, certainly the pi note of the artist. The image of the world, composed and composed across the bandiere of the stati that composed it, diventata tutt’uno with the figure of Alighiero Boetti. An aesthetically grand intuition, which at the time was one of the most extraordinary geopolitical resentments from 1971 to the fallen Berlin wall in 1989. Particularly also the modus operandi with which some of the works were realized. In the solco degli artisti concettuali that have preceded him, in particular Marcel Duchamp, Boetti has sviluppato a based practice sul sovvertimento delle concezioni del ruolo dell’artista. Egli, ideato il concetto della Mappa da realizzare, forms a series of guide line alle richmatrici afghane that in the concrete realizzavano l’opera. Cos doing Boetti has always exercised a minimum control over the final result of self-employment. Per questo lungo i border superiore e inferiore della Mappa di Sotheby’s, in Italian and in English, if read: “Made in Peshawar Pakistan by Afghan people in 1989 and 90 and 91”. A way to render omaggio e riconoscere alle ricamatrici il loro merito.

the artist

A member of the spicco dell’Arte Povera, Boetti is mainly known for le Mappe e Ricami, a volte chiamati Arazzi inappropriately.

Questi ultimi da soli valgono addirittura il 50% del suo mercato. For entering if it deals with conceptual expression prima che esthetic, riflessioni its geopolitics and its linguaggio, its mathematics and its logic. The queste si sono concentrates the greatest retrospective that the protagonist has seen dopo his death. Esposizioni che hanno impreziosito il suo lavoro del him e creato desiderio nei collezionisti. To enjoy it ci hanno pensato i mercantili. Semper tagliati fuori da Boetti, dopo la sua morte sono stati liberi di operare sul mercato. Tutto cominciato with a crescita of the number of lottery proposals all’asta: 63 in 2000, 138 in 2006, 157 in 2019. Poi stato il turn dei prezzi. For an Arazzo di piccole dimensioni if ​​it passes quickly it gives 30/35,000 euros to 50,000 euros. Operate negli anni ’90 si potevano trovare less than a million lire. To facilitate the growth of the large number of “accessibili” opere presenti sul mercato. This has allowed a rapid and diffuse circulation. Immediately, once again, the mechanism was activated, the positive trend if this is also the case for the larger dimensions. Now it is impossible to find a large-sized Arazzo at a price lower than 450/500 thousand euros, compared to 300/350 thousand euros each year. A Map hardly goes under the 2 million euros. Soprattutto was made first from ’79. In that year Boetti was infatti costretto to move the labor of the operation from Afghanistan to Pakistan, because of the Soviet invasion. An obviously determining spostamento per i collezionisti.

The apprezzamento degli inglesi

A essere particolarmente affezionati all’artista, oltre agli italiani, sono gli inglesi. It is in Italy that we sold pi lotti in Great Britain (1339 against 584), in the United Kingdom the complessive value of the superior operation (109 million euros against 45 million). Ma anche negli Stati Uniti, in France, in Austria and in Germany il suo mercato in ascesa. Merit of an affidabile ragionato catalog and of an efficient archive, unlike other artists of Arte Povera. This is an essential element to decree the commercial success of an artist. In 2022, per hour, the Boetti market per langue. It gives a sarebbe part of the understandable tutto a slight physiological slowdown, dettato dai grandi exploit degli anni precedenti. Dall’altra Sotheby’s promises to update the artist’s world record with the sua pi grande opera mai apparsa sul mercato. Non resta che aspettare per vedere che accadr.
