In conversation with Martina Simeti

How did your career in art begin?

In my father’s studio, playing ping pong.

When and how did you open your gallery?

It was in Milan in 2019. After 30 years of living abroad. Not in the world of art.

Tell us about the space you chose for your gallery and the surrounding area.

It was a sex shop. And before that, a furrier. A furry history.

Are you a collector?

Yes, African antiques and contemporary art.

Choose a work that you’d take to a desert island.

Le Déjeuner en fourrure by Méret Oppenheim… an art object, and also furry.
