It is a pleasure to announce IñigoArt and Independent Collectors collaboration to present the video series Collectors at Home where I will be speaking to collectors in their residential setting. Collectors at Home is an intimate view into private art collections through the eyes of the personal force behind them, revealing their passions and motivations for collecting and living with art.
Victor Benady’s Art Collection: “I don’t worry about investment. What concerns me is meeting the artist, immersing myself in the studio practice, getting under the skin of things and building relationships”
Zelda Cheatle’s Photography Collection: “It is a cross section of my life in photography from 1980 onwards”
“As you pull over any drawer of the plan chest, it is layers and years and years of history. How those things have come about to be there.”
Niloufar Bakhtiar’s Art Collection: “There are no rules. I think with art and the way you live, it is your own rule”
I meet Niloufar Bakhtiar Bakhtiari on the Monday after Frieze week. I thought the madness was behind me. However, as soon as she greets me into her Chelsea residence in London, she tells me she will be receiving for installation, during our interview, a piece she just bought at the art fair.
