One of the most powerful voices in art today
William Kentridge is best known for evocative stop-motion videos of charcoal drawings. His art is inextricably linked to the specific social conditions (both past and present) of his home of South Africa while also speaking to broader themes such as colonialism, creativity and the transient nature of identity.
This exhibition will feature I am not me, the horse is not mine 2008, a major new addition to the Gallery’s collection. Developed out of research for his production of Dimitri Shostakovich’s 1928 opera The nose, the work is among Kentridge’s most ambitious and celebrated video installations. It will be exhibited alongside a selection of related works.
