SAFFCA and Entabeni Farm Retreat would like to thank all of our guest for joining us on the 27th of May as we bid farewell to the artists in residence Greatjoy Ndlovu and Luc Detot.
The Open Studio was a fantastic success and we thank the Entabeni team for all of there assistance as well as a special thanks to Luciana Cooke acting as our translator for the night.
Below you will find some images from the open studio as well as a few images of the works both artists produced. Detot work explored the landscape of South Africa, specifically the landscape of Entabeni and well as Jeffreys Bay. For him, it was important to produce work that embraced his landscape but also paid homage to the ways in which people mapped themselves before one could see it from a bird’s eye view.Ndlovu’s work was described as being very spiritual and invocation of figures that paid homage to a force greater than himself. In it, you see the story of a man, a boy, and love.
We thank the artists for their commitment to the residency on a working level and personal level.
