The Global Pursuit of Happiness – Boris Petrovsky’s army of 520 Lucky Cats

Is there such a thing as too much luck? Boris Petrovsky's installation The Army of Luck that recently premiered at Art Karlsruhe 2012 leaves you with no less than 520 waving Maneki Neko (=lucky) cats to find out. Mounted on a massive 8m wide and 3m high altar and operating like a 520 pixel cat-matrix, Petrovsky's hauntingly happy army parades a variety of arm gestures (political, military or casual) and – like a giant golden mirror – echoes up to 40 character confessions dropped into a wish box.
