Helena Uambembe: Commander Nel’s Archive

In an attempt to understand her family history within the bigger context of the history of both South Africa and Angola, and the ways in which they overlap, Helena wrestles with painful memories, absences and erasures. Her collaboration with the David Krut Workshop team and printer Roxy Kaczmarek is an extension of this exploration. In this body of work Helena used the technique of Pronto Lithography combined with chine collé, collage and hand work to create a series of experimental unique prints.

William Kentridge: Studio Life Series

For William Kentridge, COVID-19 lockdown was an opportunity to re-examine his own artistic practice and the very nature of the creative process. Kentridge has dedicated himself to making a series of films called Studio Life focusing on the place of production, confinement and sanctuary for an artist: the studio. A series of photogravure images, each directly connected to a film, is being created simultaneously in collaboration with David Krut Workshop.

Why Should I Hesitate Box Set

The William Kentridge Why Should I Hesitate Collectible Box Set includes two hardcover volumes, created on the ocassion of Kentridge’s large-scale retrospective exhibitions at the Norval Foundation and Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) in 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa. Included with the two volumes is a striking editioned print, made using lapis lazuli-based pigment, featuring text overlaid onto unique found book pages from the artist’s library.
