Artistic duo Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky – collectively know as Rosenclaire – were both born in South Africa
and now live and work between Florence, Johannesburg and Cape Town. They left South Africa in 1985 for Italy,
where they established a prestigious art residency programme in Tuscany. They frequently visit South Africa to discuss
and create artworks with William Kentridge, who through the print medium is the third component of the collaborative team, as well as conducting workshops in Venda and Cape Town . They have exhibited extensively both locally and internationally, and their work has featured at major events such as the Dakar Biennale and Spheres in France. Prominent public sculpture commissions include their Soap Boxes at the South African National Gallery in Cape Town.
