Travels with Gauguin Paris Residency

In 2010, Donna spent four months as artist in residence at Centre International d’Accueil et d'Echanges des Récollets in Paris, sponsored by Regard Contemporain, Paris. The project identified the intellectual and artistic processes of intercultural reconciliations found in the life and works of Paul Gauguin. The practice-led research traced Gauguin's personal conflicts with French colonialism and industrialisation, in the context of his 'mixed' French/Peruvian heritage and his consequent life-long search for a Utopian society.
