TOILET PAPER TOTE BAG FEATURING ALL AVAILABLE ISSUES OF MAURIZIO CATTELAN & PIERPAOLO FERRARI'S TOILET PAPER MAGAZINE
As an exclusive for Art Basel Miami Beach, ARTBOOK is offering 40 complete sets of Toilet Paper with a limited edition TP bag. Toilet Paper is published by Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art.
Following in the wake of Maurizio Cattelan's cult publications Permanent Food and Charley, this new print enterprise comes straight from the aberrant, animated mind of the Italian-born provocateur, mischief-maker and macabre witness to our times. Conceived in collaboration with photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari and published by Deste, Toilet Paper contains no text but combines commercial photography with twisted narrative tableaux and surrealistic imagery to create a journal that is as appropriate for the coffee table as it is for the WC.
