ART ON SAFARI AT SEGERA RETREAT, KENYA
Set in the heart of Laikipia, one of Kenya’s most exciting safari locations, conservationist Jochen Zeitz has created an exclusive destination for fun, adventure, spiritual reflection and peace, where absolute luxury, bespoke service and generous all-inclusive offerings combine to give you exceptional privacy in your wild Kenyan home away from home.
Segera is a treasured haven for Kenya’s most celebrated wildlife species, where a holistic approach to wellness ensures a revitalizing and authentic safari experience from the moment you arrive.Nestled between glorious Mount Kenya to the east and the Great Rift Valley to the west, a stunningly diverse and seemingly magical environment, Segera’s golden savannah plains, rocky waterfalls and tropical botanical gardens offer a peerless and exquisite venue for the perfect romantic escape or family holiday.
As a Satellite of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) in Cape Town, Segera Retreat liberally displays the striking, relevant and at times culturally and socially challenging artworks of the Zeitz Collection, an extraordinary representation of contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora.
With its evocative Sculpture Garden, Segera Retreat offers a cultural safari, bringing together monumental bronze, stone and steel works, land and earth art, outdoor projections, site-specific interventions and strives to represent a broad spectrum of indoor and outdoor projects.
Artists in Residence
Visiting Segera when an artist is in residence offers guests an extraordinary opportunity to directly engage with the leading artistic talent of our time. Through experiencing this inspiring environment together, including the option of dining together, studio visits, attending artist’s talks and other social activities, guests are able to learn first-hand about an artist’s work, their research at Segera, their studio practice and the current issues they are engaging with. It is a rare opportunity to be in the presence of individuals who are creating the history of art of our time.
Segera Retreat in Laikipia, Kenya, recently hosted acclaimed conceptual artist, Hank Willis Thomas, as part of its ongoing Artist in Residence programme.
Thomas was at the camp from June 20 to July 5. He works with themes related to identity, history and popular culture. He has exhibited at various international galleries, such as the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Guggenheim and the Whitney, to name a few.
