Event Details

Here are our three April Residents at the Dora Maar House: Eizo Sakata, Philippe Goron, and Maxine Gordon. In this video they speak of their experience at the house.

Maxine Gordon is an independent scholar with a lifetime career working with jazz musicians. As an oral historian and archivist in the fields of jazz and African American cultural history, her book, Sophisticated Giant: The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon fulfills the promise she made to her late husband, jazz saxophonist and Academy Award nominated actor Dexter Gordon, to complete his biography. She is currently working on the book, Quartette, stories about four African American women Jazz musicians—Velma Middleton, Maxine Sullivan, Shirley Scott, and Melba Liston.

After studying art in Paris, Philippe Goron created accessories, jewelry, textiles and objects for the Haute Couture and luxury industries. At the same time, he has developed his own practice of drawing and painting that accompanies his discoveries and travels. He spends a lot of time in museums and exhibitions, which are a great source of his inspiration. He works on inventories, series, panoramas and snapshots. He is currently preparing a publishing project.

Eizo Sakata was born in Toyohashi, Japan. After leaving engineering work, he has been seriously engaged in an artistic practice since 1986. His creation touches multiple fields (painting, Land Art, performance…) He exhibits his work in Europe, Japan and elsewhere. He draws with sea water and waits for its evaporation for salt crystals to appear on the surface. Subtle black patterns are created by dispersion of the Indian ink on the salt water, and crystals of various sizes are formed by a slow evaporation on the white surface.
