Kentridge is exhibiting a body of work at the Stephen Friedman Gallery, 14
April - 20 May 2000.
The exhibition includes some new
figurative bronze relief sculptures arranged as a procession. They take
reference from the Maquettes he used for his theatre work and 'shadow'
films. There are also some charcoal drawings from his film 'Ulisse' on
which the artist comments: "I was looking at the body as a
metaphor for our relationship to memory and the unconscious, acknowledging
that there are things happening under the surface , which we hope
will be well contained by our skin."
The exhibition is well worth a
visit, but when I was there, the staff could not give me any information
on prices and availability of the work.
