Frieze OVR Highlights:
William Kentridge

1 October 2020

Goodman Gallery recently launched an online video programme of William Kentridge's films on their website, whilst concurrently showing this set of sculptures for their online viewing room with Frieze Art Fair 2020.

As a member of the South African Resistance Art movement in the 1980s, Kentridge's practice has since been grounded in the struggles and emotions of post-apartheid South Africa. In 1999, an exhibition of Kentridge's work went on view at London's Serpentine Gallery, and he has since had countless solo exhibitions worldwide.

Cursive comprises 40 bronze sculptures, or 'glyphs', many of which have been used across Kentridge's previous projects. With each glyph representing a different symbol, the sculptures can be rearranged as one wishes, allowing a multitude of memories and influences of different cultures and periods to interact.
