Christophe Chemin – “keep your daisies for the cold days”

032c Workshop / Joerg Koch are pleased to present “keep your daisies for the cold days,” an installation by CHRISTOPHE CHEMIN.

The works on view are derived from Chemin’s recent collaboration with PRADA for the label’s Autumn-Winter 2016/17 collections. In original drawings and collages commissioned by the label, the French artist questions our linear understanding of history, refusing to play into a dichotomy of what is considered “old” and what is “contemporary.”

“An assemblage of histories requires much more thought than plainly striving for newness,” says Chemin. He lets historic figures of great importance—Freud, Jeanne d’Arc, Che Guevara, Nina Simone, to name a few—wrestle in a free-for-all in one of his drawings, a couple embraces in the consciously kitsch “Impossible True Love,” but transferred onto shirts, dresses, and skirts, his figurative works resurface in degrees of abstraction.

WHEN: Saturday, March 19th, 8pm to 11.30pm
WHERE: 032c Workshop, St. Agnes

    This week marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Tabea Blumenschein, maven and muse of the West Berlin artistic underground. In the following obituary, originally published last year in the German daily newspaper taz, Wolfgang Müller – artist, author, chronicler of the West Berlin subculture, and our creative partner for the 032c RTW Spring/Summer 2021 collection – bids farewell to his collaborator in Die Tödliche Doris from 1982 to 1987, and his friend until the end.
