To preserve the impact of the fine arts, an adequate translation to the commercial system is necessary. This is not to erase the divide between art and commerce, but rather to acknowledge it. Meraki aims to approach this divide from the artist’s perspective, by providing support in business, pr and acquisition, and thereby translating the artist’s story in the best suitable way. This is the reason Meraki chooses not to be bound to a permanent exhibition space, but to find a location fitting for the needs of each individual project.
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.
