Marc Camille Chaimowicz presents a new exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern and shows a stunning textile installation which was originally created for Swiss RE Next in Zurich. In addition, 4Spaces has been collaborating with Marc Camille Chaimowicz for his exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York 2019.
Marc Camille Chaimowicz was born in postwar Paris, to a Polish Jewish father and French Catholic mother. The family moved to England when the artist was eight years old and soon settled in London, where he still lives and works. Chaimowicz’s continuous negotiation of two cultures and languages quietly reverberates throughout his pluralistic practice. He embraces both the fine and applied arts and challenges the categorical divisions between masculine and feminine, public and private, past and present.
His exhibition at the Kunsthalle Bern includes works from the 1970s to the present. It focuses on rarely shown works and bodies of works which have never been presented together before. Thus, a large selection of letters Chaimowicz has written since the 1970s Jahren in widely differing life situations. Their poetic nature reflects another characteristic of Chaimowicz’ work: the power of omission to bring suggestive spaces of imagination and the incomplete into effect.
