In the fortress town Heusden is Botanical Garden ‘de Meulenwerf’ located on a unique place.
It is the place where the city farm and vegetable gardens layers, a place under the shore near the river Maas.
The nature of town, land and water of past and present come together here. It is an ideal location for past and present, to connect and to nature and culture here together to discover and enjoy.
Priveekollektie is proud sponsor of the initiative.
We are proud to present a truly unique collaboration between Dominic Harris and Oliver Smart. Their first encounter in 2014 – where they talked initially about their respective works interrogating nature and movement – developed into one of the most ambitious collaborations either artist had ever undertaken: creating a puppet butterfly.
Design Miami/ is the global forum that brings together the most influential dealers, collectors, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Inspired by the galvanizing effect of Art Basel Miami Beach, the founders of Design Miami/ set out to create a design fair unlike any other that came before. They envisioned a new commercial and cultural forum that would capture the thriving general interest in design and elevate appreciation for limited-edition, experimental and historically significant design work, presented within an energetic, visually striking environment. No other design fair had ever attempted such a feat. From its inception, Design Miami/ was intended to be more than just a marketplace for high-end design. Two unique shows are held each year: Design Miami/, every December in Miami, and Design Miami/ Basel every June in Basel, Switzerland.
On the occasion of Art New York 2017, the Huffington Post wrote an article about the fair. Dominic Harris’ Bloomed is mentioned.
Dominic Harris employs technology to construct personal interpretations of our natural environment, using a highly skilled and innovative format of images that at first may seem like permanent still-lifes, until you get close up and personal. In this salon style installation of various flower bouquets handsomely framed in blackened aluminum, assisted by custom electronics that make the plants gently move, and software that utilize industrial LCD screens as a substitute for canvas, the artist presents an intriguing slant on a traditional still-life subject matter.
