An Interview with Paul Duncan About Artist’s Homes that Are Themselves Artworks

South African Artists at HomePaul Duncan, author of South African Artists at Home, was recently interviewed by Random Reads about his book and the artists who inspired him to write it.

In the interview, Duncan speaks about the wonderful homes he was welcomed into while he was doing research for this book, and the “varied and captivating” interviews he conducted with some of South Africa’s best artists.

Duncan says it is impossible to pick his very favourite moment in the process; he has enjoyed many special and intense moments. As he says, “Some of the homes were in themselves artworks.”

Read the interview:

1. What inspired you to begin researching and writing your book ‘South African Artists at Home’?

It’s an area of life that’s completely uncharted. There’s an incredible world of contemporary art in South Africa and yet for the most part we’re only ever on the outside looking in. The book is a chance to be a part of it. Don’t we all want to know where our artists live, how they live and what their homes look like?
