Sonnets

12 — 26 November 2018

'Sonnets' by William Kentridge

On the occasion of its first collaboration with Venezuelan art collector Tanya Capriles Brillembourg, LOOP presents William Kentridge’s work Sonnets (2012) at the Cercle del Liceu. Edited to the rhythm and sound of Shakespeare’s sonnet 18, Sonnets is a flip-book film created from panels of colour painted onto book pages, the hues of which correspond to an exploration of colours for a future production of Alban Berg’s Lulu. Representative of Tanya Capriles’ vivid interest for contemporary art at large, Sonnets is part of a wider collection of works built over forty years that mainly represents Latin and Central American artists. Among them are renowned figures such as Diego Rivera, Fernando Botero, Wifredo Lam, Roberto Matta, Joaquín Torres-García, Emilio Pettoruti and Armando Reverón.
