William Kentridge PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

William Kentridge free pdf South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955) has produced an outstanding body of work in multiple mediums - drawings, animations, sculptures, theatre and stage design - all of which trace the fraught political and cultural history of South Africa. This book is the first to explore Kentridge's exciting new series of seventeen large-scale tapestries, created under his artistic direction by a team of South African weavers between 2001 and 2007. The tapestries depict shadowy figures that derive from his collages of itinerant characters set against the web-like backgrounds of 19th-century maps of Europe and Johannesburg. A distinguished group of authors relate the tapestries to the rest of Kentridge's heterogeneous oeuvre, underline the centrality of drawing in his practice, and illuminate the connection between the tapestries and South African geography and history. Together they position Kentridge's tapestries as furthering his critical examination of issues surrounding memory and conflict in the context of societies that, while rife with violence, strive for peace and reconciliation.
