Private Art Collection

A Showcase of Design: Owner’s Villa

~

ABOUT THE COLLECTION

The Owner’s Villa is a personally curated gallery space including celebrated African works from Laurence Graff’s private collection. From South Africa, Zimbabwe, the Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ghana, Mali and the DRC, the pieces displayed throughout the 660-square metre villa are a pan-African convocation of vibrancy and poignancy.

Intricately crafted, the sculptural collection boasts clay works by Madoda Fani, ceramics by Chuma Maweni and the arresting figures of Conrad Botes. The restrained colour palette of the sculptures is juxtaposed with bursts of colour from canvas, textiles and photographic works.

Embraced within the profundity of this African-centric collection are intriguing artists from various international hubs of creativity including Paris, Los Angeles and New York. Celebrated American filmmaker and artist, Julian Schnabel, is under the spotlight in the dining area with the monumental piece, In Love with the Obvious, and you are invited to bask in the surreal energy of Kenny Scharf ’s, Vivagua. Artists of notable importance for contributions to their respective canons include Alexis Peskine, Ben Enwonwu, Kudzanai Chiurai, A N Lewis, Owusu-Ankomah, Helen Sebidi, Maurice Van Essche and Zanele Muholi.

This premier private villa for the continent has been created as a framework in which to showcase elements of Laurence Graff’s renowned collection. Double volume interiors and an abundance of light have resulted in a space of ethereal beauty, artistic significance and elegant comfort.

“Curating the art for the Owner’s Villa has been a very personal project,” says Laurence Graff. “Among the remarkable displays of international talent are works by new and established African artists, demonstrating the immense wealth of creativity discovered across Africa and showcased and celebrated throughout Delaire Graff Estate.”
