Iniva is delighted to announce a new limited edition print by Shiraz Bayjoo to accompany the artist’s residency and exhibition Ile de France 14 January – 7 February 2015.

This small, affordable edition of 30 giclée digital prints depicts an archival postcard of the Dalblair, a 19th century steel barque which sunk off the coast of Mauritius in 1902 and after which the print is named. Bayjoo has used collage and acrylic watercolour to transform the depicted boat, the shipwreck of which is now a mainstay of the tourist coastline at the Pointe D’Esnay.

The print captures Bayjoo’s interest in encounters between his native Mauritius and its colonial past which are omnipresent in his work Ile de France, and are commonly found as a juxtaposition of painted and archival material in his artworks. Printed onto a cotton rich Somerset Satin paper with raw edging.

Bayjoo will be exhibiting and developing work in our education space during the residency. Iniva is providing Bayjoo with an open studio to enable a dialogue with visitors and provide an opportunity for him to edit his new film Ile de France.

This is a rare opportunity to own one of Bayjoo’s works, produced in collaboration with Iniva solely for the residency.
