ICA is pleased to present this limited edition print by Marc Camille Chaimowicz, made especially for the ICA.

Chaimowicz established himself in the 1970s with his evocative installations and performances. His installations have often included the artist’s photographs and his prototypes for fabrics, wallpaper and ceramics, as well as found objects and artworks by others. His work combines a sensitivity to the personal and the everyday, with a highly developed sense of theatre and lifestyle.

‘For Emma’ is the second print that the artist has generously created for the ICA. Much like his 2009 edition ‘Les Voyageurs’, this piece revisits a work entitled ‘Here and There’ (1978), which comprises a group of decorated panels and painted boards, upon which photographs featuring every-day and domestic details are mounted.

‘For Emma’ relates to a new work in which Chaimowicz has created an illustrated design for the Flaubert classic, Madame Bovary. The decorative pattern of this print could be seen as the motifs woven into the picnic rug upon which the heroine Emma and Leon would happily sit for hours, in those halcyon days before he left for Paris, heartbroken and disillusioned, and she finally succumbed to adultery with another.

Marc Camille Chaimowicz was born in post-war Paris and lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include Artists Space in New York and a major solo show at Secession, Vienna. Marc Camille Chaimowicz showed in the ICA exhibition The Secret Public (23 March – 6 May 2007).
