Books & Ephemera 1977–2023
Marc Camille Chaimowicz
22 September–3 November, 2023

Since the early 1970s, Marc Camille Chaimowicz has defied straightforward categorisation, creating large-scale installations that combine everything from found objects, painting, performance and sculpture to lighting and ceramics. Visually rich and precisely observed, the objects and images he designs, makes, and gathers from elsewhere propose connections, set up oppositions, and trace narratives in a dense play of puzzle, metaphor, and interpretative possibility. This approach extends seamlessly to the printed material associated with his practice, which range from books, invitation cards, posters, prints, clothing and wine labels.

Paige Bradley’s Drive It All Over Me was commissioned by the artists Jay Chung and Q Takeki Maeda and concerns their work Bad Driver, 2023, Jack Goldstein’s Selected Writings, and Vanessa Place’s Gone with the Wind and concerns broad themes of subtextual narrative, authorship, and identity in text-based visual artworks while also touching upon allegory, elaborately subtle jokes, and writing as a sculptural material.

Alexis Hunter
Published by Unbidden Tongues, Rotterdam & Kunstverein München, München, 2023, 24 pages with postcard insert (b/w ill.), 22 × 11 cm, English

Unbidden Tongues #8: Feelers brings together three photographic series by artist and activist Alexis Hunter. In a storyboard-like fashion, her ‘photo narrative sequences’ forensically detail her manhandling of artefacts of patriarchal oppression through the caressing touch of an array of characters: the Marxist wife, an interventionist secretary and a manicured mechanic. Born in New Zealand, Hunter moved to the United Kingdom in 1972 where, at the age of twenty-four, she joined the Women’s Workshop of the Artists Union and invested devotedly in feminist organising alongside her artistic practice.
