Maurizio Cattelan & Pierpaolo Ferrari
“Love is More” presented by FUJIFILM
The word is out—literally. A photozine fizzing with wild concepts, artsy visuals and no text at all? It’s got to be TOILETPAPER! The brainchild of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, who among his many art world pranks raised a gigantic finger sculpture at the New York Stock Exchange and exhibited a live curator taped to the wall, and top-flight fashion and advertising photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, whose credentials include major corporate accounts like Nike and Sony, covers for L’Uomo Vogue and publication of the art journal Le Dictateur in 2006. Joining them from TOILETPAPER’s first issue in 2010, art director Micol Talso has helped take the zany new publication off the magazine racks and into the festival scene with such bold installations as a chic designer interior covered in photos at America’s largest art fair, Art Basel Miami Beach.
Here in Kyoto, Cattelan and Ferrari will fill an entire 3-storey building with hyper-colorful Italian foodie subculture imagery. Mangia!
There will also be an exhibit of new photographs taken with FUJIFILM’s latest GFX camera. And on weekends, a TOILETPAPER studio with a cameraman making take-home prints of gallery visitors.
Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan and fashion photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari teamed up with art director Micol Talso to launch TOILETPAPER Magazine in 2010. Known for its provocative visual stylings and playful photo-illustrations across diverse genres, it has been featured at the Arles International Photography Festival 2016 and Art Basel Miami Beach 2016.
