Margaux Derhy Solo Show “90 Great Days, no More” opens at Greatmore Studios on Thursday November 23 from 5pm.
Visiting Residency Programs exist to invite artists for a time and space away from their usual environment and obligations. They provide a time of reflection, research, presentation, production and immersion into a new culture. They often allow an individual to explore their practice within another community; meeting new people, using new materials, experiencing life in a new location and potentially integrating elements of that experience into their art.
The relationship between the resident and the host and its community is often an important aspect of a residency program. It was thus quite naturally that this exhibition « 90 Great Days, no More » is here to explore with you the experience as a french artist in South Africa for three months at Greatmore Studios. The wish is to share some insights about the immersion of Margaux’s actual work about childhood remembrance into South Africa multi-layered culture and is a way for thanking you for the warm welcome in the Mother city. Merci !
