William Kentridge: Thick Time

Friday 21 September 2018Sunday 03 March 2019

Exhibition of large-scale film installations by South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955) including O Sentimental Machine (2015) and The Refusal of Time (2012), an immersive work exploring the technology of time-keeping and string theory, created in dialogue with physicist Peter Galison. A display of new and recent tapestries, works on paper and artist books will accompany the film projections, presented within an environment designed by Kentridge's long-term collaborator Sabine Theunissen. Combining drawing, tapestry, music and film projection as well as sculpture, this exhibition draws on sources as broad as early cinema, China's Cultural Revolution, opera, scientific theories of time and space and the generative qualities of nature and creativity.
