Chamber gallery is now hosting its second annual Chamber Collection, “Human | Nature,” curated by photographer-filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman, in tandem with Chamber’s founder, Juan Garcia Mosqueda. Chamber Collection #2 spotlights the natural world’s interactions with man’s living environment via a collection of design and art objects and other ephemera. The collection also draws influence from ethnographic art, biometrics and Japanese aesthetics.
Debuting in three separate installments, called “Chapters,” Chamber Collection #2 will premiere in the fall, winter and spring. The first chapter of the collection spotlights botanic artist Azuma Makoto, architect Bjarke Ingels, artist Adam Fuss, designer Carl Auböck, landscape architect Marc Peter Keane, and Zuckerman himself, in addition to up-and-comers like Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Fort Standard, Ika Künzel, Karl-Johan Hjerling and Marlène Huissoud.
“As an artist, I’ve been deeply invested in an exploration of the natural world,” explains Zuckerman. “So when I was approached about assembling Collection #2 for Chamber, it felt right to delve into the conversation between design and nature, and its function in our living spaces. The show encompasses a collection of objects that reflect a meeting point between man and the environment.”
