Maurizio Cattelan & Pierpaolo Ferrari: Toilet Paper

Published by Freedman Damiani
Edited by Dennis Freedman. Text compiled by James Hoff.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Maurizio Cattelan: Toilet Paper</I>.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re-edited by Dennis Freedman in collaboration with Cattelan; it also includes a significant portion of previously unpublished images.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.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Interview Magazine

Christopher Bollen

In typical form, the art world's merry prankster [Maurizio Cattelan] has spent his first year of "retirement" working, opening a gallery in Chelsea, and collaborating with creative director Dennis Freedman on a retrospective book of imagery from the first six issues of his beautiful, funny, shocking, eye-popping art magazing TOILETPAPER.

WWD

Kristi Garced

What first appears sometimes squeamish, later becomes hysterically funny. And some things which you think are funny become really disturbing.

V Magazine

Natasha Stagg

If you haven't browsed the anothology of Toilet Paper we suggest you pick one up.

New York Magazine

Hilary Moss

It's like, when a little kid gets a coloring book and there's lots of outlines and there's lots of ideas but you get to fill in the color.

W Magazine

Fan Zhong

Maurizio Cattelan may have, as he claims, retired from making art, but his cunning sense of the mischievous and macabre hasn't stopped haunting the public. Consider the new bookToilet Paper (Freedman/Damiani). a collection of surreal, unsettling images (like the one above) Cattelan and and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari created for their two-year-old magazine of the same name. Paired with similarly peculiar texts (among them Jonathan Swift's devilish satire "A Modest Proposal," which suggested that the Irish should eat their homeless children), the volume reads as one long, extrodinarily vivid dream.

Interview Magazine

Christopher Bollen

'I would say that working with Maurizio is a kind of mad, disjointed, lyrical trip that goes up and down, over and around and finally through the woods to a place that you never knew existed before,' Freedman says. A more accurate description of Cattelan's mind has not been uttered.

Details Magazine

Jesse Ashlock

You know you're in the home of someone with taste if TOILETPAPER is on display. The Biannual picture mamgazine, founded in 2010 by Italian art provocateur Maurizio Cattelan and fashion photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, abounds with interesting images: a mountain of pink ice cream studded with cigarette butts, two spades protruding from a woman's hindquarters. This collection (Freedman Damiani; $65), which contains the first five issues and unpublished material, is guaranteed to shock, amuse, and telegraph your cultural savvy.

Wallpaper* Magazine

James Reid

Nudity, high fashion, fetishwear (and lolipops) feature in surreal and perverse scenarios

Art Basel Miami Beach Bestseller: Maurizio Cattelan: Toilet Paper

Art Basel Miami Beach Best-seller: Maurizio Cattelan: Toilet Paper“As we proceeded, my master was astonished at the capriciousness of my mind, and he relaxed somewhat of his former assiduity which made me a little angry with him; he smiled, but has since told me, it arose from the best of intentions, being fearful that he might nip in the bud that which one day would bloom, and become the rarest flower in creation.” Featured image, by Maurizio Cattelan, is reproduced from Freedman Damiani's brand new compendium of the artist's magazine, Toilet Paper, already one of our best-selling Holiday Gift Books and a favorite title at both Design Miami and Art Basel Miami Beach, which opened this week.
