Zinedine Zidane‘s infamous 2006 World Cup final headbutt has inspired a new sculpture currently on show in New York City’s David Zwirner Gallery (see above).

The violent finale to Zidane‘s illustrious career, where he headbutted Italian defender, Marco Materazzi’s sternum is sculpted in bronze. The exhibition is called, ‘Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf’ and is the work of Algerian conceptual artist Adel Abdessemed.

The eye-catching and powerful exhibition brings together recent works that revolve around themes of war, violence, and spectatorship. It also includes four life-size sculptures of the crucified Jesus made entirely from razor wire, as well as drawings of ‘kamikaze’ porcupines, weasels, tortoises, and other reptiles all with sticks of dynamite strapped to them.

The exhibition was unveiled on the 17th February and is on show until this Saturday (17th March) – check out more stills from the show here.

Accidentally (but perfectly) timed to coincide with the recent news that The Stone Roses are getting back together, is a new exhibition that’s set to open in London this coming weekend.

The Manchester Connection at The Movie Poster Art Gallery (1 Colville Place, London, W1T 2BG) will display “original artefacts from Manchester’s music and design renaissance” and covers the years 1976 to 1992.

The “selling” exhibition takes place between the 12th and 25th November and is free to enter.

Check out some of the items that’ll be on display (and available to buy) here.
