Thank you.\n\nMaurizio Cattelan has been making headlines in the art world ever since the 1990s, astonishing and surprising the public and the cultural establishment with his provocative, critical but also humorous sculptures. Together with photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, who specializes in particular in fashion photography, Maurizio Cattelan has been producing the art magazine Toiletpaper since 2009.
The individualized room installation features diverse elements such as wallpaper, lamps, sofa, carpet, sculptures and cushions. The unique world of Toiletpaper, with its surrealist and quirky pictorial language, is here implemented in three dimensions in all its visual wealth. Cattelan and Ferrari are offering you the opportunity to purchase this world in material form rather than as a design on paper. Conceived and implemented uniquely and specifically for the Summer Night’s Gala at the Fondation Beyeler, the Toiletpaper Lounge installation completely transforms the ambiance of a room and offers you the chance to call a long-term Toiletpaper installation your own.
