Is Art Transformative?-William Kentridge
Transcript of Is Art Transformative?-William Kentridge
‘Return’ is a very creative and unique type of art, which William Kentridge uses. The technique used is quite transformative because it transforms from something unimaginative to something extremely thoughtful. Through the use of this creative practice, the image has a more detailed meaning. What Will Come In ‘What Will Come’, William Kentridge transforms a cylindrical mirror on a table to revolving images, for example aeroplanes and tanks. In this particular artwork, the manner of our emotions and memory including the responsibilities in our everyday lives are showed. Also, the transformation is how they come together and then it shatters. (When the image gradually draws out) It somehow portrays the process between peace and conflict. The theme of this artwork is related to the title ‘What Will Come’ which implies that the future is unpredictable. Through William Kentridge’s artworks, we can determine that art is definitely transformative in many ways. The resources used, the appearance and structure are all art transformations.

7VA6 Louisa's Personal Experience Teresa's Personal Experience In his artwork 'Breathe', William has used a lot of
imagination and creativity in his design and the
way of doing it. In my experience, I realised that
art is transformative and can be very complex
and fun at the same time. In William Kentridge's film, 'Return', the feature that allowed the artwork to be completely visible was the revolution. It required patience to view the resulting product. From a certain perspective, the structure may seem to have unnecessary pieces attached to the main foundation. (the wire) In my personal experience of transformation, I have learnt that patience is 'the key to success'. Patience is required in many situations. For example, when learning a new art technique, time is required to eventually perfect the practice.
