The son of a leading lawyer in the anti-apartheid movement, William Kentridge has said that the cultural boycott of South Africa in a way made it easier for him to find his way as an artist.


The 57-year-old has chosen to showcase his work for the first time in India at Tushar Jiwarajka’s gallery Volte, which happened to be Bombay Art Gallery till Aditya Ruia shifted out because of the exorbitant rent. How the debut solo show in India came about is an interesting story. Two years ago, Jiwarjka had just finished watching Kentridge’s documentary Anything is Possible at his gallery when two visitors happened to walk in — it was Kentridge and his wife Anne Stanwix. A stunned Jiwarajka pressed the eject button and walked up to them to show the DVD.


William Kentridge is probably the most celebrated artist to emerge from South Africa, feted by the international art frat for his drawings, animated films, prints, tapestries and sculptures.
