Weighing and Wanting – William Kentridge

 

South African artist William Kentridge has attracted international attention for his innovative animated films in which simple charcoal drawings seem to magically come alive to tell deeply personal stories that function as broadly allegorical tales for our times. William Kentridge: Weighing and Wanting is an installation of charcoal, pastel and gouache drawings and a film transferred to laser disk which is based on the drawings. (Blurb taken from animation.)

Kentridge creates his animations through constantly drawing and erasing the same work.

Enjoy.
