Janne van Gilst (1991) is a photographer based in The Hague. In her work, Van Gilst deconstructs her environment, and translates the hidden information and stories that she finds into images.
Van Gilst about her work: “As an artist I am intrigued by landscape and language. I believe there is a lot of hidden information in both. Especially in the different regions of a country, where nature and landscape, but also the dialects change and influence one another. The main subject of my research is the way this reflects on the people who live there.”
During This Art Fair, Meraki will present a monographical presentation of the project “Where the trees have names” by Janne van Gilst. Visitors are invited to experience the visual research of the relationship between place and memory, collected by van Gilst during her 4500 km long journey though the United Kingdom last year.www.jannevangilst.nl
