Toilatepaper is an artists' magazine created and produced by ©Ovid and (T) and it was born out of a shared passion for sheets. The magazine contains no text, 2 pictures and 5 sheets. Each sheet springs from a roll of toilet paper, simple, and through a complex orchestration of textures it becomes the materialization of the artists' mental outbursts. Since the material for further editions is gone in March 2020, Toilatepaper has created a world that displays a heavenly state, fundamental to ambiguous narratives and a troubling imagination. It combines the vernacular of a commercial toilet paper offer 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.
