After thinking about the overall subject I decided to source material that would aide me in discovering more about Chaimowicz and his overall practice. I had the book The New Decor which was written by a collection of authors for the Haward Gallery Exhibition entitled the same. This is where I discovered Chaimowicz and his work. Although it did not give me a lot of information, it provided me with a starting point from which I could start to formulate an introduction.
From here I decided to search for books and articles around my subject area. I took a few days to find what I was looking for and I gathered a series of mainly articles surrounding Chaimowicz and his work. Having a read through these articles I started to construct a list of his art work alongside themes that I pulled out from the articles. (These articles will be explained further on in depth depending on their content.)
This lead me on to constructing a rough plan of how I felt I could build my essay most effectively.
My first plan was to create three sections each one focussing on a different theme. These would be Memory, Identity and Commodity Fetishism and Luxury. The second plan was to focus on individual art pieces and expand my themes from them. After having a chat with Hannah, we discussed that after I started to write the essay itself, the right way of constructing my essay would come to me.
