A collaboration between Toilet Paper and Martin Parr.
“ToiletMartin PaperParr Magazine” is a new, special edition of “Toiletpaper” published by Damiani. This unique edition celebrates a new suite of pictures presenting a back-to-back of images made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari on the one side and Martin Parr on the other.
The recipe is very tasty: the founders of “Toiletpaper” hosted Martin Parr as a special guest and asked him to form a dialogue with “Toiletpaper” images, coming back to them with a photograph from his archive for each image. The result is a rapid succession of images in which irony, subversion and provocation force the viewer to the impelling discovery of the next pair of images.
Also available in a limited edition, with an exclusive tote bag included..
Toilet Paper is an artists' magazine created and produced by Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari (Le Dictateur), born out of a passion or obsession they both cultivate: images. Following in the wake of Cattelan's cult publication Permanent Food, the magazine contains no text; each picture springs from an idea, often simple, and through a complex orchestration of people it becomes the materialization of the artists' mental outbursts. Since the first issue, in 2010, Toilet Paper has created a world that displays ambiguous narratives and a troubling imagination. It combines the vernacular of commercial photography with twisted narrative tableaux and surrealistic imagery. The result is a publication that is itself a work of art which, through its accessible form as a magazine, and through its wide distribution, challenges the limits of the contemporary art economy.
