Catalogue Note

"The landscape hides its history. The general nature of terrain and landscape as image is to appear as fact. The power of both the childhood landscapes I have referred to and of the paintings of people…is that they appear out of time. As if they would give us a truth other than their being a single moment in a process which precedes and will surpass the instant represented…The difficulty we have in holding onto passions, impressions, ways of seeing things, the way that things which seem to be indelibly imprinted on our memories still fade and become elusive, is mirrored in the way in which the terrain itself cannot hold onto the events played out upon it." 

William Kentridge, Dan Cameron, William Kentridge, London 1999, p. 126
