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 first series of Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks are ready! In order to keep the past of fashion alive, preserve and comment on it, we decided to take one magazine from our mimimagazines collection apart and turn it into artworks; by combining them with costume jewelry from our collection (which is also vintagedeluxe). The collages, 45 in total, are all made with laminated pages from one magazine; Linea Italia Magazine, augm1980, and carefully selected brooches, fixed together in a storytelling way.
‘Hummingbird’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Silver Face’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
‘Bad’ from Mimi Berlin’s VintageDeluxe Fashion Accessories Artworks #1
The ingredients for these collages are both vintagedeluxe. The brooches are mostly costume jewelry which are fixed onto the laminated fashion magazine pages, they can be taken off if you’d like to wear them or you can hang the artwork on your wall (with or without the jewelry; you can decide that after purchase for yourself!)
They aren’t up for sale ye;t they have to be photographed properly first…..we’ll keep you posted!
Quoting the artist himself: “In 2011 a personal artistic journey began for me which led me to explore the economic crisis and how to fight it with creativity.”
Facebank by by Alessandro Rabatti
“Facebank’ is an artistic project which combines icons of the world economy with icons of the comic world, born from the necessity to give a face to a faceless power that is more and more characterized by a disarming loss of faith from the general public” >read/see more
Reflections by Alessandro Rabatti
“This project explores the topic ‘economic crisis’ from a different and thought-provoking perspective. The application of the concept behind the Rorschach inkblot test to the designs on dollar bills gives reason to think about capitalism in a creative manner.” >read/see more
