29 June – 27 July 2019

Mini Galerie kicks off the summer with a flowery solo exhibition by Utrecht based visual artist and illustrator Merijn Hos. The exhibition titled Image of a Memory depicts melancholic feelings in a semi-abstract poetic way through flowers and everyday objects. The flowers in this exhibition symbolize human interaction. At some point flowers wilt but they always seed offspring and bloom again. Life.

Exclusively for his second solo show with the gallery Hos created a new series of twenty-four line drawings using a fixed colour scheme of orange, blue, green and brown. In addition to this new set of drawings Hos will showcase a video piece that he created in collaboration with his brother Jurriaan Hos.

Merijn Hos (Enschede, 1978) earned a BFA degree in illustration from the School of Visual Arts in Utrecht, where he also lives and works. His art projects have been exhibited worldwide at KK Outlet, Chapter One and Rough Trade in London, Beginnings Gallery and Grey Area in New York, Showroom Mama and Stedelijk Museum Kampen in the Netherlands, Studio Banana in Madrid, Parsons School of Design in Paris, McCulloch Gallery in Melbourne, and Design Museum in Helsinki. He also works on commissioned projects for clients like Down The Rabbit Hole Festival, 30303 Records, Vice Magazine, Coca-Cola, Nike, KLM and the New York Times.

The exhibition is supported by Raket and Distels, a flower garden and studio close to Rotterdam.
