To accompany their major retrospective exhibition, Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years (27 March – 9 June 2013), New York based artist collective Bernadette Corporation have made an exclusive limited edition print. 

BC Lifestyle INT is one of a series of images created on the occasion of Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years, for Purple magazine.

Conceived by Bernadette Corporation and photographed by Benjamin Alexander Huseby, this highly polished sequence of ‘lifestyle’ images is accessorized and styled with artworks and texts by the group.

Bernadette Corporation’s edition for the ICA depicts a model descending a staircase in front of a blow-up of page 159 from The Complete Poem, the group’s collectively written epic.

The origins of Bernadette Corporation lie in the organisation of parties in downtown New York, their mock incorporation and ambiguous branding strategies developing in the mid '90s into a women’s fashion line. Their engagement in quotation, concepts, fictions, appropriation, provocation, hoaxes, and anti-artistic postures of crass commercialism have subsequently seen them move within the fields of magazine publishing, film production, political activism, literature and the market-driven art world.
