Adding a special note of Disney Goth creepiness is Maurizio Cattelan’s life-sized model of Pinocchio lies face down in the reflecting pool at the foot of the Guggenheim ramp. Though Pinocchio is no doubt a stand-in for Cattelan himself, considering the crisis on Wall Street, the figure is more morbid than comic, whether murder victim or suicide.
