In order to keep the past of fashion in general alive, to preserve it and comment on it we, Mimi Berlin and Friperie Jansen, decided to partner up. Friperie Jansen is a seller of second hand fashion and the owner of an extensive collection of vintage (costume) jewelry, amongst many other collections.
We created little time capsules, or 3D collages, by combining our vintage treasures (jewelry and photo’s) in a storytelling way. The photo’s are laminated with a coating in 250micron with matte finish. Almost invisible, small punched holes keep the brooches in place.
Tip from Mimi Berlin: send one to a friend, they will love this thoughtful gift!
Sammelwut is a German term; literally translated into English as collectors rage. But it rather means the deep urge to collect stuff. As you know we, at Mimi Berlin, are almost professional collector’s, also our objects are made of what we collect. Rob Geertman, the owner of the Sammelwut store chose a number of Faces, made by us, to showcase at Sammelwut. Sammelwut we love that word and we are very pleased that our work can be found at this art and interior store in Nijmegen.
“Sammelwut is the store in Nijmegen for lovers of contemporary art and a stylish and modern interior. In our store you will find a varying range of artworks combined with an inspiring collection of home accessories.”
Nijmegen is a lovely city in The Netherlands, set in the ‘river landscape between the Rhine, Meuse and Waal rivers “Nijmegen is also the oldest city in The Netherlands so a city-stroll will bring you to castles and “archaeological finds dating back to the Romans and other times” The Sammelwut shop is situated in the city-center in the Lange Hezelstraat 89, 6511 CE Nijmegen
Reflection in Time is an art project initiated by Nannet van der Kleijn. Ms van der Kleijn sent about 500 pieces of blank linen canvasses in A4 size to friends, family and acquaintances. She asked if they wanted to do ‘something’ with that piece of cloth. (The previous sentence is us, at Mimi Berlin, putting the more elaborate vision of Nannet van der Kleijn in a tiny nutshell ofcourse!)

The Pacifier Music Doll Face is sweeter than Cola!
The Pacifier Music Doll Face is a part of the ‘Important Bagatelles‘ series, made only with discarded (early) plastics and, in this case metal, by Mimi Berlin. The ojects are visibly assembled and each product we used is still identifiable. Pacifier Music Doll Face is a unique work, signed by Mimi Berlin.
Mimi Blogger Team visited the Dutch annual art fair Big Art. This year, just as the last time, it was held at The Hemburg grounds (in an old munitions factory) in 4 large exhibition halls. Hembrug is situated on the border between Zaandam and Amsterdam.

Mimi Blogger Team took some pictures for you, who couldn’t be there, because sharing is caring and y’all know we love to share! We also shot a short video of Peter Vink explaining his light installation.
