On the 27th of February 2015, the GALERIE IMAGINAIRE was conceived and initiated by a simple publication in the press. The gallery, directed by Sébastien Delire, stems from long discussions with the artist Nico Dockx. The result is a letter from the artist to the gallerist urging him to close his old gallery (Delire Gallery) and to travel around the world with an imaginary gallery, while inviting an interdisciplinary artists community, composers, philosophes, architects, designers and poets to answer the following question: “How, what and when do you imagine the notion of gallery?”. Through this question, the GALERIE IMAGINAIRE reexamines the model of the gallery as a laboratory for possibilities.

Since 2015, the gallery collaborated with various artists in numerous projects, organizing solo and group shows across the world.

After 4 years of ongoing travels, away from the traditional art system, Sébastien Delire drops his suitcase in Equator for a new challenge and in 2020 with the GALERIE IMAGINAIRE, he develops a new project called “Casa Sarayu”. Casa Sarayu, a 7 hectares forest, an idyllic place with animals, rivers and waterfalls in the cloudy area of Pueblo Nuevo – Mindo in Equator. A place to approach environmental and social issues which include site specific projects, exhibitions, artists residencies, permaculture, housing for visitors and yoga retreats. A space in harmony with nature offering vegetarian / vegan food.

 

The project IMAGINE is an invitation for artists to send an audio recording including the word Imagine… The 20 sound recording will soon be edited on vinyl.

Limited to 300 copies, only 150 will be available for sale at the price of 20 euros.

Pre-ordering already available.
