Seychelles photographers and artists immortalize the State House building

Seychelles photographers and artists immortalize the State House building ( Seychelles' talented photographers and artists have mounted an exhibition immortalizing, through their lenses and brushes, one of the country's National Monuments, State House, which today houses the office of the President of the Republic.

In the presence of Mr. James Michel, the President of the Republic of Seychelles, Vice President Danny Faure, ministers, and high dignitaries, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, was given the privilege to officially open this exhibition entitled “State House in Portrait.”

Minister St.Ange said that this exhibition honors the central establishment of both past and the present administration of Seychelles, an edifice which he said “bears the name of State House.”

“The works of art, which are here on display, provides the laymen with a unique opportunity to view this grand establishment we know as State House, through an artistic lens, as more light is shed on the different facades and on the different details of this fascinating structure that the naked eyes often miss,” Minister St.Ange said.

Minister Alain St.Ange also paid tribute to the skills of photographers and artists for their interpretations of the ground and premises of the county's high office.

“Importantly the project, State House, through the life of the artists will not only on this day in history, give this majestic building the honor and the respect it deserves, but it will also immortalize this infrastructure onto paper, so as to capture the moment in time. In the near, and in the distant, future, the photographs and the paintings being exhibited will surely become important visual records and capture this instance as it stands at present as part of the process to preserve history for our succeeding generations,” the Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture said.

The opening of the exhibition, “State House in portrait,” which is a joint project between the office of the President and the National Arts Council initiated under the project of “State House Open Art Day,” is part of activities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the existence of State House, now considered as one of Seychelles' National Monuments.

The Chief Executive of the Seychelles Arts Council, Jimmy Savy, commended this initiative, outlining that it has opened up more opportunities to the Seychelles’ young talented photographers and artists.

“The National Arts Council is proud to enroll in this project. Young artists and photographers are seeking for more new grounds, opportunities, and challenges to unveil their talents. We are, therefore, appealing to our partners to collaborate with our young artists to promote and appreciate their art works.”

In the “Carefour des Arts gallery,” art works of seventeen photographers and artists, members of the proArt Seychelles association have combined their techniques to unveil the different facades of the State House building.

The Association’s Chairman, Golbert Nourrice, whose narrative style of using symbols, signs, and motifs features among one of the art works, took the opportunity of the opening ceremony to congratulate the artists for their excellent work.

The Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, then invited the President of the Republic to view the exhibition through “State House in Portrait.”
