William Kentridge / Stereoscope / 1999

About

The Goodman Gallery looks forward to hosting an exhibition of recent work by William Kentridge. On the day of the opening, Saturday 16th October, the gallery will have extended hours from 9h30 – 17h00.

William Kentridge’s most recent animated film, Stereoscope, is the eighth in a decade-long series featuring Soho Eckstein. The fictional Soho evolves through the films and through time, but continues to suggest the archetypal businessman – always identifiable by his pin-striped suit.

Stereoscope was first shown as a solo project at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in April 1999 – along with drawings used in making the film. Since then it has been exhibited at the 48th Venice Biennale (June to November 1999) and at Kunstforeningen in Copenhagen (June, July 1999), and Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum Joanneum, Graz (September 1999).

The stereoscope is a device used to make images appear three-dimensional by presenting each eye with a slightly different point of view of the same scene; in attempting to reconcile the difference, the eye is tricked into seeing volume. In Stereoscope the artist employs a reverse manoeuvre. A split screen dismembers three-dimensional reality into complementary but unsynchronised realities – a split suggestive of Soho’s divided self. Scenes of civic chaos point to individual disquiet and internal conflict, rather than attempting an objective portrait of external events.

In the Goodman Gallery’s presentation of the film, Stereoscope will be shown together with drawings from the film. Also on show will be recent drawings in charcoal and pastel – done on the pages of turn of the century Rand Mines ledgers and old encyclopaedias. This exhibition coincides with Phaidon Press’ publication of a monograph on William Kentridge. The book will be available at the gallery.
