Julia Holderness: Return to Villa Margaux

Based in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Julia Holderness’ arts practice has been described as ‘part fantasy art residency, part art historical research.’ Her exhibition, Return to Villa Margaux, sees her return to the creation of the subject of ‘artist-designer Florence Weir, a little known artist resident near Menton in the South of France.’ Yet, in the very constructed proposition of this “artist’s history” Holderness is thoroughly credible, her paintings, ceramics and fabrics, beautiful as an encounter and even more so as the possibility of a memory.
