Toilet PaperCalendar 2022

 - Toilet Paper
The 2022 Toilet Paper wall calendar features food-themed photographs conceived by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari taken from their cult and obsessive image-only magazine.
Multicolored cakes, jelly molded into witty dishes, grotesque fish and an expanse of steaks glimpsed under a skeleton are just a few of the vibrant and hypnotic background images in Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferarri's 2022 food-themed Toiletpaper Calendar. The images by the artistic duo, even though not always tasty, take on a new era of food photography. So please take your seat and buon appetito!
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.
