About the edition
Made from 100% superfine lambswool in a Jacquard knit technique. This double-sided knitting style achieves a design rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the artist’s design, whilst a birdseye pattern, driven by the knitting style is achieved on the underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel.
Marc Camille Chaimowicz established himself in the 1970s with his evocative installations and performances. His installations have often included the artist’s photographs and his prototypes for fabrics, wallpaper, and ceramics, as well as found objects and artworks by others. His work combines a sensitivity to the personal and the everyday with a highly developed sense of theater and lifestyle.
