As part of Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair at Moscow’s Gostiny Dvor, Shaltai Editions presented its new NATI project on September 6-9, 2018.
NATI / New Archive of Limited Edition Art is the curator project of the Shaltai Editions Gallery in collaboration with Andrey Monastyrsky, Kirill Glushchenko, Victor Alimpiev, Irina Korina, Igor Makarevich and Elena Elagina, Ivan Gorshkov.
As part of the NATI project, artists were given an envelope to keep his/her work(s). Quantity and typology of the work can vary, as long as they fit in the envelope and are printed in editions. The works are specifically made for the NATI, often using a technology new to the artist — experiment and attention to the process are definitely defining of the work of Shaltai Editions. The works are of an anthological nature. They sum up the artist’s unique vision of the world, and are made with the specific purpose of being collected in the NATI Folder, and exhibited together with the other artists taking part in the project, using the folder itself as an exhibition space. Once opened, the NATI folder can be arranged in such a way that its parts become stands for the works in the envelopes.
