William Kentridge : Why Should I Hesitate: Putting Drawings to Work
by William Kentridge and David Freedberg and Karel Nel




Overview -

A collectible, slipcased, two-volume overview on the South African artist William Kentridge, featuring a unique lapis lazuli print

Covering 40 years of South African artist William Kentridge's (born 1955) internationally acclaimed production in drawing, stop-frame animation, video, prints, sculpture, tapestry and large-scale installation, Why Should I Hesitate stands as a definitive statement on his vast oeuvre. This deluxe production, published in an edition of 1,800 copies, is comprised of two slipcased volumes with a unique print in lapis lazuli, each copy stamped and numbered.

The title references Kentridge's primary practice of drawing and how this core activity informs and enables his studio practice.
