REGARDS SUR L’AFRIQUE DU SUD (article first published : 2004-04-13)

An exhibition by Patrick de Mervelec titled Regards sur l’Afrique du Sud will run at the Alliance Française de Durban from April 1 to 12.

The exhibition 36 black and white photos collection tracing 10 years of photography in South Africa. The inauguration will be on April 4 by His Excellency Mr Jean Felix-Pagamon, French Ambassador in South Africa in the presence of the photographer, Patrick Mervelec.

"In the early nineties, a glorious Spring announced changes in South Africa, says the artist. The youth of South Africa were encouraged by a new hope. Suddenly, the impossible seemed a reality as a young man of 80 years defeated the Bastille of South Africa apartheid. With the release of Madiba, the country’s borders were reopened and after being deprived of 27 years of his life, Madiba arrived as the first tender green leaves on a branch after the summer rains. With typical adolescent fervour, the hope of a new freedom grew throughout the country. The hope of the youth turned towards the heavens, the doorway to a new world was before them."
