William Kentridge

The Refusal of Time

South Africa

13 Feb-27 April 2014

A collaboration with Philip Miller, Catherine Meyburgh and Peter Galison.

By one of the most compelling artists of our time, this powerful work epitomises William Kentridge’s intriguing, multi-disciplinary practice. An all-encompassing installation of five videos which combine the magic of theatre, drawing and music with film and animation. Projections of shadow dancers are punctuated by the rhythmic command of metronomes and appearances of the artist himself. Amidst this sits a ‘breathing machine’, a wooden sculpture akin to an accordion pulsing time. The presentation of this Australian exclusive is a major collaboration between the artist, AGWA , PICA and Perth Festival.


Produced by Marian Goodman Gallery (NewYork and Paris), Lia Rumma Gallery
(Naples and Milan), Goodman Gallery (Johannesburg and Cape Town).
