Kentridge at the Whitechapel

William Kentridge (b.1955, Johannesburg) is well known for his animated expressionist drawings in charcoal, exploring the history of colonialism and ‘the aspirations and failures of revolutionary politics’.  Thick Time is a great exhibition that shows the breadth of William Kentridge’s practice, how much more than an artist working with animation he is.   It’s really epic, and the impression that remains is of a wonderful, slightly mad reflection on time and history created with dance, film, kinetic sculpture, flipping books, dance, sticky tape, and the sound of the hurdy gurdy.img_2763 img_2766 img_2767 img_2771 img_2773 img_2774 img_2775 img_2777 img_2778 img_2779 img_2780
