Toiletpaper Shit Vase, 2019
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.
In 2009, Cattelan and the photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari launched an art magazine called Toiletpaper, a tongue-in-cheek blend of commercial photography and bizarre, surreal, even shocking subjectmatter. Conceived and designed by Cattelan and Ferrari, Toiletpaper pushes the boundaries of our value system and provides stimulating food for thought.
Toiletpaper's images invade the home decor and become everyday objects.
