Global pioneer in holistic longevity science and wellness, Clinique La Prairie, is unveiling a special art commission at Art Dubai 2024, taking place from 1-3 March 2024 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai. A sponsor of the fair, Clinique La Prairie will host an installation by Syrian multidisciplinary artist, Sara Naim, at its Longevity Lounge at Art Dubai.

Naim, who grew up between London and Dubai, found inspiration in the sun to capture the connection between wellness and wholeness, as well as  between longevity and timeless in her installation. By showcasing the motion of sunrise and sunset on its surface, the artwork symbolises the cyclicality of existence, emphasising the importance of taking time to be present.

Benedetta Ghione, Executive Director of Art Dubai, said: “Art Dubai serves as both a meeting place for art from the Global South and a platform that continuously evolves and surprises. We are delighted to continue our partnership with Clinique La Prairie, placing the new artist commission at the heart of our collaboration. Sara Naim’s multidisciplinary artistic practice and message of finding internal calm and healing is a necessity of our time, and will undoubtedly resonate with artists and audiences alike at the fair."

Sara Naim, Artist, commented: “We create meaning based on expectations of objects, rather than seeing things for what they are. The experience of a sunset is made from the viewer's reason processing the sensory information, and not from the sunset itself. It is important to ask ourselves if what we see is formed from within rather than out.”

Part of a public talk series ‘Conversations with Artists’, Naim will discuss her Clinique La Prairie commissioned work and wider practice in relation to wellness and longevity. Held on 1 March at 5pm at the Art Bar, Naim’s talk will explore these concepts from a lens of cyclicality and its symbolism, inviting visitors to reflect on their own ideas of wellness and longevity.

Fair attendees can also participate in a series of guided meditation sessions with the artist at the Longevity Lounge. Naim will lead participants through a hands-on drawing meditation, allowing them to explore visual expressions of their emotions. After the meditation, participants are welcome to explore the treatments offered at the Clinique La Prairie Longevity Lounge at Art Dubai and indulge in revitalising refreshments.

Clinique La Prairie’s philosophy of longevity combines its expertise and its holistic approach based on the following four pillars of medical insights, wellbeing, nutrition and movement. Creating a haven for respite and artistic reflection, its dedicated Art Dubai Longevity Lounge will offer visitors access to a Detox Bar, Holistic Health consultations, and a Luxury Experience Room for moments of pure relaxation. It will also present Clinique La Prairie’s Holistic Health supplement range. The culmination of years of research, the Holistic Health AGE-DEFY supplement is formulated to activate a profound systemic action on vital organs, including the skin, promoting overall wellbeing, while the PURITY formula integrates the dimension of "detox through skin," specifically targeting detox pathways to enhance skin health.
