About this title

Synopsis:

On the occasion of his sensational retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Italian provocateur Maurizio Cattelan announced that he was retiring from art. In fact, his new career had already begun in 2010 with Toilet Paper, a magazine-cum-artist's book containing no text, only full spreads of color photographs that appropriate the slick production values of commercial photography to deliver dreamlike (or nightmarish) images. This deluxe volume gathers all of the images published in the first five issues, re-edited by Dennis Freedman in collaboration with Cattelan; it also includes a significant portion of previously unpublished images. The photographs vary in style and reference, from nineteenth-century crime scene to French New Wave film still; from optical illusions and games to word play. Among its more notorious images are a man dressed as a nun shooting up in a tawdry bedroom and a dirty ear floating in a bowl of yellow soup. In an interview with Vogue Italia, Ferrari said that "the project emerged from a passion/obsession that Maurizio and I have in common. Each picture springs from an idea, even a simple one, and then becomes a complex orchestration of people who build tableaux vivants. This project is also a sort of mental outburst." This clothbound volume is as appropriate for the coffee table as it is for the toilet.

About the Author:

Maurizio Cattelan has exhibited internationally in leading international institutions and has participated numerous times in the Venice Biennale. He curated the 4th Berlin Biennale together with Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick. In the meantime, he managed to promote No soul for sale - A Festival of Independents that took place in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern in 2010 along with giving birth to art magazines such as Permanent Food and Charley. Since retiring from art, after the acclaimed retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, he totally committed himself to the new publishing project, Toiletpaper magazine. Pierpaolo Ferrari is a fashion and advertising photographer and creative researcher. In 2007 he began a productive contribution with L'Uomo Vogue that offered him the chance to explore the portrait's potential and radically change its codes. In 2009, the metamorphosis is completed thanks to sharing his new publishing obsession with Maurizio Cattelan: Toiletpaper magazine. When he's not shooting, he can be found surfing in Costa Rica.
