Atelier E.B.
Ost End Girls



Atelier E.B is the company name under which the designer Beca Lipscombe and the artist Lucy McKenzie sign their collaborative projects. The group was formed in 2007 by Lipscombe and the illustrator Bernie Reid, who are based in Edinburgh, and McKenzie, who is originally from Glasgow and lives in Brussels. Since 2011 the pair have operated as a fashion label, and this June at Galerie Micheline Szwajcer they present their third collection, The Inventors of Tradition II, for sale direct to the public from a custom-built boutique installation.
Art’s fascination with fashion rarely penetrates beneath its glamorous surface, seemingly content to perpetuate its contradictions without critical analysis. Atelier E.B, by placing both practices on an equal footing, combine art and fashion to explore many complex themes, including alternative forms of commercial production and distribution. Their designs are produced, sold and promoted ethically, yet are too idiosyncratic to be easily marketed as an ‘eco brand’. Ateler E.B recognise that clothes are sophisticated tools for empowerment and pleasure.

Sportswear has been acting as a modernizing influence on fashion since the nineteenth century, and continues to be at the forefront of how people express their cultural allegiances. In 2014, with the referendum to leave the United Kingdom, Scotland was asked to reflect on its identity, and Atelier E.B is the only label explicitly to address this through fashion. For IOT II they combine exquisitely woven or knitted cashmeres and silk lingerie with neo-classical nylon ‘cosplay’ tracksuits. Hand intarsia Scottish football tops in cashmere have nationalist logos appropriated then pixilated. Silk and lace football shorts, oversized polo shirts, a football hooligan paisley shawl, fake Charles Rennie Mackintosh jewellery, counterfeit Bennetton, a trompe-l’œil zip brooch, and fictitious sponsorship from the Clydesdale Bank. Other highlights include a wool mix school-skirt, an Ivan Lendl picnic blanket, the perfect artschool-girl coat, cashmere leisure suits in Black, Derby grey, Blackcurrant and Rum and Eastern European gym shoes.

This publication was produced by Atelier E.B. around their “Ost End Girls” collection, featuring garments, texts by Lucy McKenzie, photoshoots and graphic details/textiles/showroom interiors/shop-fronts/ads from the work of Atelier E.B. (and also Marc Camille Chaimowicz), Designed by H I T studio, London.

Marc Camille Chaimowicz
An Autumn Lexicon

Chaimowicz is increasingly influential for younger generations of artists, his work explores the space between public and private, design and art, and includes painting, sculpture and photography with prototypes for everyday objects, furnishings and wallpapers.

A choreography of objects, images and colours, in his Serpentine Gallery installation the artist draws upon ideas of memory and place. This responds to the architecture, natural surroundings and history of the Serpentine which was converted from a 1930s park café to a gallery in 1970.

This unique hybrid between a catalogue and artist’s book is a personal exhibition journal that takes the form of a French cahier – a ‘book within a book’ which comprises a visual index of technical drawings and photographs relating to recent projects. Wrapped in a dust jacket featuring a new wallpaper design and including a number of installation and archival images.

Designed by Fraser Muggeridge studio and featuring texts by Michael Bracewell, Mason Leaver-Yap, and Stuart Morgan.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Marc Camille Chaimowicz: An Autumn Lexicon at Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London, 29 September – 20 November 2016.

Marc Camille Chaimowicz
The World of Interiors

  

One of the great artist monographs of our time. Disappearing from existance very quickly after its publication, this book fast became a very hard to find classic.
The publication was conceived and realized by Marc Camille Chaimowicz, French artist living in London (*1947), on the occasion of his solo exhibition at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich. Functioning as an all encompassing scrapbook reference catalogue of the history of the artist’s practice over nearly 30 years (almost a perfect folow-up artist book to Chaimowicz’s “Café Du Reve” from 1985), The World of Interiors is a perfectly reproduced issue of the famous World Of Interiors interior design magazine that has been beautifully détourned by Chaimowicz through inserting and collaging his patterns, drawings, writings, photographs, paintings, documentations of installations, sculptures, his own domestic interiors, furniture, objects, clippings from other magazines, references to Jean Cocteau, Proust, Flaubert, Eileen Grey, Jean Genet, Giacometti, and texts by contributing writers throughout its pages. Legend has it (and we have this from the best sources) that the publishers received a ‘cease and desist’ letter from World Of Interiors’ publisher Conde Nast and the majority of the print-run was ‘destroyed’, making this a very scarce and sought after book.

During the 1970s, Chaimowicz’s approach to performance, at a time when the norm was a more or less a political or corporeal engagement, was a lighter, more poetic concern with impermanence and evocation. Far from the noisy declarations of some of his contemporaries, his performances were opportunities for the spectators to negotiate their relation to art, and to reflect on their own position. His relation to music shares this interest in unstable states and possibilities.

Looking back over nearly 30 years of work, the artist conceived this publication as a reference monograph and a source catalogue, ranging from his first post-Pop scatter installations to works realized in the 1990s.

Published with the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich.
Awarded in the competition “The most beautiful Swiss books 2007.”

A fine example of a very collectable and special book.

* Condition: Very good – (Tight and clean copy with original protective plastic sleeve over dust jacket and only light shelf/reading wear) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
