Book Launch: Esther Gatón & Darya Diamond, Emil Lime
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Esther Gatón, collage detail, 2023

Emil Lime collects various materials that nurture and give shape to Esther Gatón’s artistic practice, including collages made with her phone pics, sketches, sporadic notes and drawings, together with the writing of authors that have been influential on the work: Fredy Massad, María Fernanda Ampuero, Darya Diamond and Cory John. 

This limited edition book was produced to accompany the solo show by Gatón in the CA2M, Madrid, which she produced during her residency at WIELS, Brussels.

Available from the ICA Bookshop.
Esther Gatón (b. Valladolid 1988) works across sculpture, writing and film. Her work is haunted by the pop aesthetics of late capitalism and the economic boom and crisis that took place in Castille while she was a teenager. In 2022 Esther completed a residency at WIELS in Brussels, and in early 2023 founded abierto, a non-profit project for encountering diverse artistic practices in small and intimate contexts, based in South East London.

Darya Diamond (b.1991) is a Mexican–American artist working in print, sculpture, audio and film. She explores literal and symbolic figurations of the body as a workplace. Her work has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions in London, Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Beijing, Brussels and Budapest. Diamond was selected for Bloomberg’s New Contemporaries Award in 2021.
