Maurizio Cattelan has been astonishing and surprising the art world and the general public with quirky, provocative sculptures ever since the 1990s. At once critical and humorous, and always profound, he explores a wide range of themes.
Here, the unparalleled world of Toiletpaper takes the form of a unique mirror. Bidders thus have a chance to acquire a slice of Cattelan and Ferrari’s world in the form of a design object rather than a magazine.
In 2009, Maurizio Cattelan (born 1960 in Padua) and the photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari (born 1971 in Milan) launched an art magazine called Toiletpaper, a tongue-in-cheek blend of commercial photography and bizarre, surreal, even shocking subject-matter. Conceived and designed by Cattelan and Ferrari, Toiletpaper pushes the boundaries of our value system and provides stimulating food for thought.
