Margins: Walking between Worlds (Part 3)

An exhibition in 3 parts, Margins: Walking between Worlds creates a platform for bringing together work that registers the often complex issues inherent in the simple act of walking.

Part 3 explores issues of displacement and forced exile in the work of South African artist William Kentridge. We focus on Shadow Procession, 1999, a seminal work that reminds us that mobility is not always a matter of choice. Instead, forced exile and displacement offer ways of considering the implications of the everyday act of putting one foot in front of the other. Beautifully made with a disconcertingly celebratory sound track, this film reminds us of the complexities and contradictions bound up in the simple act of walking.
