Review: "William Kentridge (b. 1955, Johannesburg) has always addressed the more challenging and intimate aspects of contemporary life and of South Africa, both during Apartheid and in the post-Apartheid period. Through his short animated films, his sculptures, installations, charcoal drawings on paper - based on a technique of erasure - as well as through his activities in theater as set designer and director, Kentridge explores the nature of memory and emotions, the ambiguity and complexity of social conflicts in the age of globalization. His art suggests an original perspective which is both elegiac and dramatic, whereby perpetual change, process and transformation are balanced between ethics, responsibility and poetry." "This catalogue accompanies the exhibition organized by the Castello di Rivoli that will travel in 2004 and 2005 to the K20 K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen of Dusseldorf, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Sydney, the Musee d'Art Contemporary in Montreal and the Johannesburg Art Gallery in the artist's hometown."--BOOK JACKET.
