ICA is pleased to present Christian Flamm's limited edition silkscreen print, entitled N°12.  

This edition is based on the design of the 12th object in his series Actual Books. For this series, the artist created hand-drawn dust jackets wrapped around empty books. In this instance, the edition relates to a repeating motif of coloured geometric shapes that has been used in graphics for many centuries. Flamm draws attention to such design elements which might sometimes be overlooked, often hinting at a personal narrative related to his own situation and experiences.  

N°12 includes an embossed element in place of the signature - a ‘CF’ logo based on the artist’s initials - derived from the pretzel shape common to his home region of Swabia in Germany. Several of the sculptures from Flamm's Actual Books will be on display at the Room&Book

Born in 1974 in Stuttgart, Germany, Christian Flamm now lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include: Continuation Souabe Zwabische Voortduring, dependance, Brussels (2015); 100 anni Galleria Fonti, Galleria Fonti, Naples (2014); 10 more actual Books, Room&Book, ICA London (2014), A Selection of Actual Books, Claire De Rouen Books, London (2013); (with Margarete Jakschik), Galerie Karin Guenther, Hamburg (2012); and An Alphabet, Art Basel Miami Beach – Art Positions, Miami (2012).
