HELEN CHADWICK: WREATHS TO PLEASURE. Richard Saltoun Gallery, London, 2014. Published by Ridinghouse, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 72 pp. 24 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781909932012 In English.
Publisher's description: One of contemporary art's most provocative and profound figures, British artist Helen Chadwick was celebrated for her controversial feminist installations. Her death in 1996 cut short a brilliant career, but her influence resonates in the work of the YBAs and other contemporary artists. Published on the occasion of Helen Chadwick: Bad Blooms at Richard Saltoun Gallery, London (2014), this volume reexamines her most iconic series, Wreaths to Pleasure (1992-94), originally shown at the Serpentine Gallery and MOMA, New York. Consisting of 13 large circular photo-pieces of vividly colored flowers floating on the surface of domestic fluids, the sensual and sexually suggestive work celebrates the unholy alliance of organic and toxic, fluid and static, clean and dirty. Color illustrations of both historical and posthumous installation are accompanied by David Notarius's foreword, Marina Warner's eulogy, and Sophie Raikes's essay on the work's inspiration, process and creation.
