William Kentdrige

The South African artist William Kentdrige succeeds to seduce the Anglo - Saxon audience and critic but few know something about him in France. These disaffection can be explain by the fact that he can't be classify in any categories. Son of the famous lawyer Sidney Kentdrige who has defended Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu or Steve Biko against the apartheid regime he refuses to follow his father way of making because he thinks that it can't be imitated. He prefers learning mime in Paris with Jacques Lecoq or puppet show at the Johannesburg Junction Theater. In 1991 William Kentdrige invents his own artistic way of making. He rejects the classical technical where each movment is drawing on different pages. He rather uses ink or charcoal for making several drawings on the same page. The William Kentdrige drawings deal with different themes like South Africa story or autobiography but far from the evidences.
