A Few Pieces of Toilet Paper

For a few years now, Maurizio Cattelan (who just exhibited a retrospective at the Guggenheim that marked his “retirement” from the art world) and world-class photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari have been putting out a biannual magazine called Toilet Paper. In short, it’s a collection of the most deviant, funny, absurd, and stimulating images to grace the pages of any publication, ever. A while back we reached out to them, asking whether they would be interested in doing a shoot for VICE. They said yes, we peed our pants and a few months later they sent back seven images, one of which depicts a very realistic fake penis and graces the cover of this issue. The remaining six are a mix of photos exclusive to VICE and a couple that serve as sneak previews of what the world can expect to see in the next issue of Toilet Paper. Bel lavoro, ragazzi.
