William Kentridge How to Become
How to Become
While the title does not read like a question, nor does it refer to a collection of precepts on the teeming creations of William Kentridge. Gérard Macé offers no lesson here. Quite the contrary: guided by the artist's singular work, which blends the shadows of Méliés with the echoes of a magic flute, or a parade resembling a danse macabre with the grotesque steps of a king called Ubu, he invites us to step off the beaten track and wander as we please. "So follow your own devices, and fly with your own wings."
Translated from the French by Samuel Martin
