#CollectionLeridonChezVous launch

The Gervanne and Matthias Leridon Collection invites you to a weekly creative tête-à-tête with one or more artists and their works. This weekly human encounter first started during the Covid-19 pandemic as a way for artists to express their artistic vision. Take five minutes to discover the strong link binding these artists and collectors.

#CollectionLeridonChezVous showcases original works created by contemporary African artists every week. This dive into the heart of modern creation is always a human adventure and a story of passion.  Some artists are already well established in major institutions and exhibitions worldwide, while others are new faces with new works that have yet to be exhibited. This artistic immersion in contemporary Africa will take you on a journey to explore the changing world and show you how creation is reinventing our future.

Every week during the first lockdown, #CollectionLeridonChezVous interviewed an artist from the collection so that they could express their personal thoughts on this unprecedented period. Apart from sharing their artistic perspective on the crisis, the artist’s work was also featured on our digital platforms.

Through #CollectionLeridonChezVous, several artists and people have helped the Gervanne and Matthias Leridon Collection navigate this year with a creative, fresh perspective. Thank you, Malala Andrialavidrazana, Serge Mikpon aka Aston, Wayne Cahill Barker, Stéphané E. Conradie, Willem Boshoff, Georgina Gratrix, Daniel Halter, Eddy Kamuanga, Richard Mudariki, Gonçalo Mabunda, Gideon Mendel, Hassan Musa, Rigobert Nimi, Adjaratou Ouedraogo, Nyaba Ouedraogo, the San artists, Jean-Servais Somian, Géraldine Tobé, Freddy Tsimba, the women of the Makwacha village, Amina Zoubir, and many others.

Take the time to appreciate art!
