William Kentridge, Vivienne Koorland Conversations in Letters and Lines
William Kentridge, Vivienne Koorland
Conversations in Letters and Lines
William Kentridge and Vivienne Koorland are two of South Africa's foremost visual artists. They met as university students in the mid 1970's and have been talking and thinking together about art ever since. With a selection of work chosen to bring out the historical, formal and thematic links between their practices, this publication looks at their mutual interests in maps and mapping, in drawing, in books and the bookish, in writing and language and at how these interests come to the fore in their rich and compelling work.
Brought together by Tamar Garb, herself a long-standing friend of both artists, the publication features an insightful essay by Garb, a conversation between Kentridge and Koorland, and writing from Briony Fer, Joseph Leo Koerner, Ed Krcma and Griselda Pollock. Lavishly illustrated, it offers the chance to look in a new way at the work of these two significant artists.
