Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari

Description

Toiletpaper is an artist’s magazine created and produced by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari and born out of a shared passion for images. The magazine contains no text. Each picture springs from an idea, often simple, and through a complex orchestration of people it becomes the materialisation of the artists’ mental outbursts. Since the first issue in June 2010, Toiletpaper has created a world that displays ambiguous narratives and a troubling imagination. It combines the vernacular of commercial photography with twisted narrative tableaux and surrealistic imagery. The result is a publication that is itself a work of art which, through its accessible form as a widely distributed magazine, challenges the limits of the contemporary art economy.

Maurizio Cattelan has exhibited internationally in leading institutions and has participated numerous times in the Venice Biennale. He curated the 4th Berlin Biennale with Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick. Cattelan also founded the art magazines Permanent Food and Charley.

Pierpaolo Ferrari is a fashion and advertising photographer and creative researcher. In 2007, he began a collaboration with L'Uomo Vogue which offered him the chance to explore the portrait's potential and radically change its codes. In 2009, he teamed with Maurizio Cattelan to create Toiletpaper.
