Room With Its Own Rules: Collection #3


“Room With Its Own Rules” is an example of what is clearly not yet happening. It presents a parallel, post-patriarchal reality in which an all-female show is a normal phenomenon, rather than a specially planned “affirmative action.” – Matylda Krzykowski

Accra / 2017

For this work I was inspired by a text I read about a person living in Accra, the capitol of Ghana - the former British colony now independent > the classic „European“/English wallpaper fades out in tropical colors and fauna, …one side has the clash of different traditions - but also nature, that takes back civilized property so fast - that gives hope and feels good…

It is printed on a light fabric in bright colors - hung over a simple metal bar - not fixed, it moves in the wind.

Damn Magazine online: "The final show of Collection #3 is an all-female show, with work by Ana Kraš, Ania Jaworska, Åsa Jungnelius, Buro Belén, Claudia Caviezel, Gun Gordillo, Hilda Hellström, Johanna Grawunder, Katie Stout, Kiki van Eijk, Lindsey Adelman, Liz Collins, Marlène Huissoud, Mimi Jung, Mira Nakashima, Pieke Bergmans, Sabine Marcelis, Sarah Zapata, Sigrid von Lintig, Studio Berg, and Zohra Opoku. The title of the show, Room with Its Own Rules, ties together the many studio visits and conversations conducted, encouraging a range of strong women define their own principles for life and work. 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.

Chamber gallery is a 21st century cabinet of curiosities for one-of-a-kind, rare and limited edition objects of design and art. Founded in 2014 in New York City, the gallery aims to be a reliquary for unusual objects, as well as a platform for design experimentation. As a central part of its program, an artist or designer is chosen to curate an entire collection, bringing their unique viewpoint to Chamber through specially commissioned works and rare and vintage items."
