OBJECT AMNESIC. The Ephemeral Collection
Jens Soneryd, Salonistes
“ A meeting place for aesthetes involved in the creative arts either professionally or as patrons through an online platform and curated mobile events around the globe. ”
Rather than turn our backs on the modern world, pining for days gone by, we embrace technology and use it as a way to promote the mutual acquaintance of art lovers and art workers. Traditionally, the Salon was a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. These gatherings often consciously followed Horace’s definition of the aims of poetry, “either to please or to educate” (“aut delectare aut prodesse est”).
Today we hold true to that definition by providing an online forum to connect artists, art dealers, gallery owners, artists’ agents, patrons, collectors, as well as those who simply have an amateur or recreational interest in the arts.
