Made by Maurizio Cattelan in collaboration with fellow countryman Pierpaolo Ferrari, Toilet Paper 5 is a brilliant new creation from the aberrant, animated mind of the Italian-born provocateur, mischief-maker and macabre witness to our times. Published by Le Dictateur, this part artist's book, part magazine contains no text; only full spreads of color photographs with imagery that often appropriates the slick production values of commercial photography to deliver dreamlike (or nightmarish) images that are as appropriate for the coffee table as they are for the WC. In an interview with Vogue Italia, Ferrari said that "the magazine is born of a passion/obsession that Maurizio and I have in common. Each picture springs from an idea, often a simple one, and through a complex orchestration of people becomes the materialization of the artists' mental outburst."

Book Description Les Presses du Reel, Dijon, 2012. Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. "Toilet Paper is an artists' magazine created and produced by Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari (Le Dictateur), born out of a passion or obsession they both cultivate: images. Following in the wake of Cattelan's cult publication Permanent Food, the magazine contains no text; each picture springs from an idea, often simple, and through a complex orchestration of people it becomes the materialization of the artists' mental outbursts. Since the first issue, in 2010, Toilet Paper 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 magazine, and through its wide distribution, challenges the limits of the contemporary art economy."Text: Ferrari Pierpaolo. pp. 40; staple binding, new, still in its shrink wrap.
