'The Refusal of Time'William Kentridge at Iziko South African National Gallery
The Iziko South African National Gallery in association with the Goodman Gallery will host 'The Refusal of Time' (made in collaboration with Philip Miller, Catherine Meyburgh, Dada Masilo and Peter Galison), a 5-channel video installation with a moving sculpture and immersive soundscape.
The project was made in a series of workshops over two years. It started as a series of conversations between William Kentridge and Peter Galison, looking at different theories of time from Newtown through to Einstein and black holes; in each case finding the metaphor for the science rather than trying to illustrate it. In the end the piece deals with the transformation of time into material objects, sound, images and mechanics. It has a running cycle of 30 minutes.
At the Cape Town City Hall, Design Indaba in association with the Goodman Gallery, will present two performances of the chamber opera 'Refuse the Hour' (made in collaboration with Philip Miller, Catherine Meyburgh, Dada Masilo and Peter Galison).
As part of Design Indaba Conference, Kentridge will present a new lecture/performance, including a live musical performance at the Cape Town Convention Centre on 27 February at 15h30.
'The Soho Chronicles: 10 Films by William Kentridge' is a new book written by the artist’s brother, Matthew Kentridge about William’s series of 10 Drawings for Projection (1989 – 2011). William and Matthew will be in conversation about 'The Soho Chronicles: 10 Films by William Kentridge' on 28 February at 15h00 at Design Indaba Expo, followed by a book signing.
19 February - 21 June
