The exhibition features new work by the artist, spanning two recent opera productions, “Lulu” and “Wozzeck”, and several projects in between.
The show brings together drawings, prints, sculpture, tapestries, a kinetic model theatre as well as a 360° virtual reality film. The core is a series of charcoal drawings made by Kentridge for his production of Alban Berg’s opera, Wozzeck, which premiered at the Salzburg Festival in July. The opera delves into the tormented life of a homicidal soldier and is characterised by bleak landscapes, denuded of their trees and scarred by shell craters.
