About William Kentridge
William Kentridge was born in 1955 in Johannesburg (South-Africa). He currently lives and works in Johannesburg (South-Africa).
William Kentridge had his breakthrough in the early 1990s with poetic black-and-white stop-motion films, but since the turn of the millennium he has developed his formal idiom and combined his love of both the film and theatre world in a series of overwhelming installations – environments, or a kind of theatrical stages in which the viewer is enveloped and overwhelmed by compositions consisting of moving images, music and sculptural objects.
William Kentridge is represented by Edition Copenhagen.
