MAURIZIO CATTELAN, « TOILETPAPER », GALLERY, KNOKKE

TOILETPAPER : MAURIZIO CATTELAN + PIERPAOLO FERRARI – Gallery, Knokke, Belgium – 03.08.2018 to 02.09.2018.

Founded in 2010 by artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, Toiletpaper is an unparalleled magazine. It is a half-artist’s book, mid-magazine, that questions our contemporary obsession with images by exploring our most untold desires and impulses.

Consisting exclusively of photographs, each of which is painstakingly constructed within a specific mental environment, Toiletpaper perverts the codes of media iconography, borrowing from fashion, advertising, cinema, combining commercial photography, twisted visual narratives and surreal imagery to create a series of striking paintings, mixtures of disturbing normality and disturbing ambiguity, in front of which the dread mixes with the visual pleasure. As a work of art as such, Toiletpaper also questions, through the accessibility of the magazine format and a wide distribution, the nature and limits of the contemporary art market.

This show will exhibit a limited series of antique furniture after they has been redecorated with the provocative imagery of Toiletpaper.
