Draw – Interactions and extensions in the process, project and artistic work. Case study of William Kentridge

Gomes, Noemia Herdade;


The work of William Kentridge, the internationally renowned south-African artist, constitutes the basis of this thesis dedicated to the study of the interactions and extensions in the process, project and works of art that can be achieved through the Drawing. The research, classification and organization of more than 5.500 documents, collected at the artist’s studio, under his supervision, organized into a database developed by this thesis’ author, allow for a more global perspective on the creative methodologies of William Kentridge. The observation of the above mentioned documents, together with a comprehension of their role on the development of Kentridge’s art work, allowed to distinguish a series of creative technologies that constitute, per se, an unusual set of mediums and procedures converging into unique creative results. These processes adopt the contribution of the technologies of photography and film which are used together with other processes of drawing representation. This thesis aims at understanding drawing as high potential creative process by offering an analytical view on the creativity processes on the work of William Kentridge and how his work, departs from theatre and Opera to encompass other domains of artistic creation such as architecture and design.
