This post-Pop scatter artist's seminal installation Celebration? Real Life has seen a lot of attention in recent years, and most recently been literally revisited--revised and re-installed--in London, Zurich, and Dijon. The 1972 original and the revivals are all here, in plans, drawings, invitations, and photographs, presented as both reflections of the time in which they were first conceived and important references for a younger generation.

Chaimowicz, a Frenchman in London, was one of the first performance and installation artists. Unlike his early contemporaries' noisy declarations, his pieces have always been poetic meditations on impermanence. This reference monograph looks back over more than 30 years of work.
