Le dix-neuvième numéro du magazine surréaliste et provocateur conçu par Maurizio Cattelan et Pierpaolo Ferrari présente vingt-neuf nouveaux tableaux vivants oniriques (ou cauchemardesques), une collection de photographies scabreuses, drôles, absurdes et déviantes qui interroge notre obsession contemporaine pour les images.

Fondé en 2010 par Maurizio Cattelan et le photographe Pierpaolo Ferrari (Le Dictateur), Toilet Paper est un magazine sans équivalent. Dans le sillage de Permanent Food et de Charley, les projets cultes de Cattelan, Toilet Paper, mi-livre d'artistes, mi-magazine, interroge notre obsession contemporaine pour les images en explorant nos désirs et pulsions les plus indicibles. Constitué exclusivement de photographies, dont chacune est minutieusement construite au sein d'un environnement mental spécifique, Toilet Paper pervertit les codes de l'iconographie médiatique, empruntant à la mode, à la publicité, au cinéma, combinant photographie commerciale, récits visuels tordus et imagerie surréaliste pour créer une série de tableaux saisissants, mélanges de normalité dérangeante et de troublante ambiguïté, devant lesquels l'effroi se mêle au plaisir visuel. Œuvre d'art en tant que telle, Toilet Paper interroge aussi, de par l'accessibilité du format magazine et une large distribution, la nature et les limites du marché de l'art contemporain.

29 new dreamlike (or nightmarish) living tableaux by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari.

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.
