William Kentridge - NAI010 (2016)

"The South African artist William Kentridge (born 1955) has achieved a worldwide reputation with his large, poetic and incisive installations. Over the last decades the versatile artist has developed a multidisciplinary way of working that combines film, animation, drawing, music and theater. Typical of his work are the powerful charcoal drawings that he turns into moving images. Kentridge's work explores the historically charged past of his native country. The artist is producing an impressive large-scale installation for EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, to be shown on eight large screens and accompanied by a soundtrack of an African brass band. This publication of Kentridge's texts, sketches, set photographs and film stills lays bare the process by which this unusual project came into being and places it within the context of his oeuvre."
