This unique and beautifully presented book includes almost 100 prints from 1988 to the present, with a stress on experimental, collaborative and serial works. Kentridge’s distinctive use of light and shadow and silhouettes, his concern with memory and perspective, and his absorption in literary texts are all strongly in evidence throughout this book, which provides new insights into the working methods of this prolific artist.
This, the first major monograph on the widely acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge brings together nearly two hundred of his works made between 1989 and 2012. Exploring Kentridge’s diverse expressions across a wide range of media, from film and video to sculpture, design, drawing, and printmaking, the book is lavishly illustrated with more than 2,000 images.
Lexicon is a facsimile cloth edition of an antiquarian Latin-Greek dictionary which William Kentridge has embellished with black ink drawings of what might seem at first to be animal silhouettes.
