Short Interview with Anna Graber, an industrial designer and Feral user.
As Co-Ownership of Art is a fairly new concept, we wanted to give the opportunity to our users to express their opinions and thoughts about being part of the Feral Horses’ community. Through a series of conversations with our Feral buddies, we are going to explore the reasons that push our users to co-own art through our online platform.
First, tell us a little bit of yourself.
My name is Anna, I’m an industrial designer, currently doing my MA in design management and culture.
I am very open about what I like. I enjoy visiting small and big galleries and see the work of emerging artists. Photography and artworks that play with different materials can enchant me.
My parents are fascinated by art, always looking for great pieces, I think that’s why I like it.
In your own words, what does it mean for you to be a co-owner of art?
Co-own art means investing in culture, giving a higher value to art and making it yours, even with just a portion of ownership. It allows me to invest the money not only in the stock market but in pieces of art as well.
What do you think is the best thing about being a co-owner?
Great pieces always have a very high price, not everyone has the opportunity to own it. Co-owning art gives you the opportunity to have a portion of it. On top of that, it gives you a whole new experience by investing and learning more about the art market.
What attracts you about Feral Horses?
What really interests me the most is the concept of co-ownership developed by Feral Horses and how it will increase the value in the artworks of emerging and established artists in the coming years.
So far, what has been the best moment you had since you became part of the Feral Horses’ community?
I’m a new user, so I haven’t been part of any events yet, but I’d love to pop up some. I found it fascinating to see the process behind Habemus Hominem by Jago and giving the chance to co-owners to attend the Vernissage of the artwork in Rome.
How would you like to see Feral in 5 years?
I hope to see you strong, with a wider reach reaching to America and Latin-America increasing the users both on social media and on the platform.
Which artist would you like to see on Feral Horses?
Gustav Klimt, Botero, Tamayo.
In your opinion, is a co-ownership model helpful for the art market?
I think it opens the door of the Art World to many more people and therefore have a wider range of artworks in the market and on public display.
If you had to suggest Feral to someone, what would you tell him/her?
I’d tell them to trust that the Feral Team is made of passionate people who know what they want to achieve and it will be very successful in the upcoming years.
