The new Charles Greig ex­hi­bi­tion is in­spired by an epic ad­ven­ture through Africa

In­spired by a mu­tual love of their child­hood sto­ry­books and the golden era of film, Christo­pher greig and ard­more founder Fée hal­sted reimag­ine an epic ad­ven­ture through africa with Safari, the new ex­hi­bi­tion pre­sented by Charles greig. nos­tal­gic and play­ful, the ex­hi­bi­tion romances the idea of trav­el­ling across africa and dis­cov­er­ing the beauty of its bushveld. Christo­pher, Fée and her team of ceramic artists and painters have cre­ated mys­te­ri­ous and ma­jes­tic char­ac­ters that come alive with colour and move­ment. The col­lec­tion in­cludes teapots, sculp­tures, bowls and can­dle­hold­ers; each char­ac­ter adorned in hats, binoc­u­lars, trunks and suit­cases, they em­bark on a trek across the con­ti­nent.

ard­more was founded in the breath­tak­ing foothills of the drak­ens­berg moun­tains by Fée in 1985. To­gether with the late, cel­e­brated ceramic artist Bon­akele ntshal­intshali, the ard­more name be­came syn­ony­mous with fine art and sto­ry­telling. It wasn’t long af­ter found­ing ard­more that Fée met Christo­pher, and it was the start of a long friend­ship that have seen the two col­lab­o­rate on many cre­ative projects, such as pre­vi­ous ard­more ex­hi­bi­tions by Charles greig, themed Great Cats of the World, Trav­ellers of Africa, and Croc­o­diles and Other

Cu­riosi­ties. The Safari ex­hi­bi­tion is born from Christo­pher and Fée’s deep and en­dur­ing love of africa and cel­e­brates the way the con­ti­nent awak­ens the imag­i­na­tion. The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til 9 Septem­ber  at Hyde Park Cor­ner, Johannesburg.  charles­greig.co.za  ard­more.co.za
