“Room With Its Own Rules” at Chamber NYC

“Room With Its Own Rules” at Chamber NYC

4 May - 15 July '17

Chamber is pleased to announce that Collection #3, curated by Matylda Krzykowski of Depot Basel,
will open with Part IV Room With Its Own Rules. Collection #3 is comprised of four parts that have opened periodically since October 2016. Part IV is the final show of Collection #3. Krzykowski’s last show for the collection will feature newly commissioned, one-of-a-kind and limited-edition
work made exclusively by women. The title of the show, Room with Its Own Rules, ties together the many studio visits and conversations Krzykowski conducted, at which she was able to encounter an encouraging range of strong women that define their own principles for life and work.

Like the three previous shows within Collection #3, Part IV expands on the inspiration behind the iconic 1956 artwork by Richard Hamilton, Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing, including the concept of collage, materialist fantasies, and the subsequent, pervasive temptation for household objects.

In 1992, Richard Hamilton was asked by the Tate Modern to return to this iconic collage and create an edition of color facsimiles of his original 1956 piece. Titled Just what is it that made yesterday’s homes so different, so appealing, this updated version satirizes the world of his original, and includes the replacement of the male bodybuilder, a figure prominently featured in the 1956 version, with a female bodybuilder.

“After curating three shows at Chamber, I sought the fourth (and final) to focus on women,” says Krzykowski.

“This show presents designers, architects and artists from different backgrounds, skills and age – all having established their own rules in a market that is still man-dominated.”

The selection of objects produced for Show IV is a combination of work by female designers, artists and architects who relate to ideas around living spaces and desired objects. Many of the works on view center around colliding ideas of functional object and sculpture.
