This evening there is a big opening night
in the Liebieghaus sculpture museum
presenting South African artist
Was lucky to participate the press opening this noon.
Dr. Demandt, Director of Liebieghaus (and Städel and Schirn) getting ready.
The artist, Mr. William Kentridge.
The Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung presents a very special guest:
William Kentridge (b. 1955) brings his works into dialogue with
the collection of the Frankfurt museum, which spans five thousand years.
Conceived as a comprehensive exhibition showing over eighty works and installations,
“William Kentridge. O Sentimental Machine” exemplifies the whole range
of the South African artist’s oeuvre. Kentridge has made an international name
for himself with his drawings, films, and theatre and opera productions.
And check in Wikipedia:
William Kentridge (born 28 April 1955) is a South African artist
best known for his prints, drawings, and animated films.
After the press conference there was the possibility
to take pics of the exhibition makers,
from the left Dr. Demandt, Mr. Kentridge,
Kuratoren Mrs. Schrader and Prof. Dr. Brinkmann.
And the art?
Well, very interesting indeed.
The artist can be seen in most of the videos.
PS. Kentridge is using a lot of book pages for his art.
See the Singer machines moving in my Facebook account.
Two Swedish guys still fixing the coffee machine installation.
As you can see, it is a mixture of old and new.
Jeff Koons was shown in Liebieghaus as well.
The William Kentridge exhibition is all over the Liebieghaus,
please do walk up to the tower, the rooms there are charming
and the views all over Frankfurt fascinating.
These digitorials are excellent ways to prepare yourself:
