Abstract:

South African artist William Kentridge's practice spans an impressive range of medias and disciplines, including drawing, animation, film, sculpture, performance, music, theatre, opera, and collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects. His works are grounded in politics, history, and science, and yet maintain a space for contradiction and play. The two publications found within this boxset showcase two complimentary exhibitions, which together form the largest, most comprehensive presentation of Kentridge's work, anywhere, ever. The first volume includes essays, conversations, a lecture, and a meticulous timeline of the history of twentieth-century South Africa, interwoven with a chronology of the artist's life, work, and thinking over the decades. The second volume includes a visual index of William Kentridge's sculptural practice; a photo essay charting the development of his large Lexicon sculptures; and a comprehensive essay by Columbia University's Dr. David Freedberg, which locates Kentridge's work within several key artistic movements. Enclosed in every publication is one unique silkscreen print with Lapislazuli on found book page. In total 18 different motives exist, which are each stamped by William Kentridge. 2 vols in a slipcase. Bd. 1: Text: Elana Brundyn, David Freedberg, Seven Keys, Karel Nel; Bd. 2: Ed.: Sven Christian, Ann McIlleron. Text: William Kentridge, Koyo Kouoh, Tammy Langtry, Nástio Mosquito, Azu Nwagbogu, a.o. Exhibition: Norval Foundation, Cape Town, South Africa (24.08.2019 - 23.03.2020) / Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, Cape Town, South Africa (25.08.2019 - 23.03.2020).
