Curator and writer Dagmar Dirkx explores the position of Marc Camille Chaimowicz as a discrete dandy. While engaging with the exhibition in the gallery spaces, they examine how Chaimowicz’s work is a predecessor to current concepts of queerness, gender, and identity. Dirkx looks at the idea of a 'camp' aesthetic and how this has evolved over the last decades.
