About The Work

Rich in art-historical reference and theatrical narrative, the drawings, projections, photogravure and films of South-African artist William Kentridge are characterized by the artist’s repetitive, sketched style and stop-motion vignettes. Much of Kentridge’s work is interconnected with his larger cultural projects and interests, such as this editioned etching Casspirs Full of Love, which references the racism and unrest of the South African political system—in particular a radio message from a mother to her Army deployed son (a casspir is an armoured riot-control vehicle.) At once political, and poetic, Kentridge’s pieces drawn from various cross-cultural references, creating a beautifully unique visual language.
