Salon Open is a hybrid platform which fuses art, lifestyle, design,
tattooing and event productions to an aesthetic symbiosis.
Salon Open is a concept developed by artist Zusi Rongen, which combines her knowledge
of various practices and media blend in to an all around ‘creative service’ experience.
I studied art, jewellery and product design in Poland and fine art in Maastricht – Holland with emphasis on 3D installations, media, performance and design.
After graduating (2003) My work has centered on contemporary art installations, combined with fashion, drawing, graphic design, video and performance happenings with an ear for sound and an eye for unified conceptual design.
In 2006 I’ve written a audio visuele biographical book call “Music Book” and in 2008 “Safe Place “ was born; an organization curating international art exhibitions, collaboration projects and happenings.
My first tattoo experience was in my parents house when I was 12 years of age. With great determination I have entered into this ancient ritual: single needle, hand tapped. Afterwards I felt, transformed, protected and grown.
Over the years I cultivated my knowledge in many different disciplines, searching to find a way to create a cohesive ensemble. During my travels this particular craft had caught my attention once again due to the deep connection I felt with symbols, animals, objects and events. I translated them into my story-book on a body.
This is my story, one of many…
