The twentieth issue of the surreal and provocative magazine conceived by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari presents twenty-nine new dreamlike (or nightmarish) tableaux vivants, a collection of scabrous, funny, absurd and deviant photographs that question our contemporary obsession with images.
Founded in 2010 by Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari (The Dictator), Toilet Paper is a magazine like no other. Following in the footsteps of Cattelan’s cult projects Permanent Food and Charley, Toilet Paper, part artist’s book, part magazine, questions our contemporary obsession with images by exploring our most unspeakable desires and impulses. Composed exclusively of photographs, each meticulously constructed within a specific mental environment, Toilet Paper perverts the codes of media iconography, borrowing from fashion, advertising and cinema, combining commercial photography, twisted visual narratives and surrealist imagery to create a series of striking tableaux, mixtures of disturbing normality and troubling ambiguity, before which fright mingles with visual pleasure. A work of art in its own right, Toilet Paper also questions the nature and limits of the contemporary art market, thanks to the accessibility of the magazine format and its wide distribution.
