Marc Camille Chaimowicz subtly intervenes in the gallery space, altering the atmosphere and décor of the environment. This catalogue, devised in collaboration with the graphic designer Adeline Morlon, reflects his working method, developing quiet, multi-perspective views of a spatial installation. Chaimowicz’s environments embrace the domestic sphere, incorporating interior design, ceramics, wallpaper and textiles. The exhibition at Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen documented in this book shows works spanning the years 1975 to 2005 and includes objects, drawings, photo collages and paintings.
‘Spaces and their potentialities of allowing ideas to come into being forms the central pillar of interest for the artist Marc Camille Chaimowicz… for the first time ever in a German institution, he has realized his ideas in a richly faceted manner and shown his work to an interested and curious audience.’ (Rita Kersting)
