"I drew a frame which was then cut from a sheet of metal. This frame evokes Lagos and reflects my feelings in this city. Its chaos, its noise, its smells where everyone seems to find their place, its nature which seems to want explode behind the walls of the gardens. There is a lot of metal in Lagos: fences, barbed wire, around the buildings. It protects the houses, their entrances, their interiors.

 

I wove flowers into this cutout frame, with shimmering fabrics found at the Tejuosho market. Avalanche of patterns, colors like the encounters I have there; warm, funny and curious people. This city is buzzing.

 

Flowers are what we bring when we are invited to someone's house, to please, to thank. Flowers are also what bring an interior to life, especially since it is the most common pattern on textiles across the world. It's universal. "

The artist is called within the framework of this residence, to collaborate with an art profession to lead to the creation of a common work.

For this, Delphine Denereaz collaborated with artisans Adenle Olukunle and Betzalel Alvin.
