But a closer glimpse at William Kentridge's life shows how his work might be interconnected, leading to one overarching theme ó an apartheid-era South Africa. "One has to know South Africa's socio-political condition and history to grasp my work fully," says Kentridge. From Louvre, Paris, to the Museum of Modern Art, New York, his art has been shown at some of the world's most prestigious museums. Now, an assortment of Kentridge's work ó film installation, drawings, sculptures, prints, tapestries and flip-book films ó is on display at Mumbai's Volte Gallery. The exhibition titled "The Poems I Used to Know" is on till March 20. The most celebrated of these is the audio-visual installation I am not Me, the Horse is not Mine, an animation film done in Kentridge's unique way of photographing successive hand-drawn charcoal images.
