“How to Become William Kentridge”. While the title does not read like a question, nor does it refer to a collection of precepts on the teeming creations of William Kentridge. Gérard Macé offers no lesson here. Quite the contrary: guided by the artist’s singular work, which blends the shadows of Méliès with the echoes of a magic flute, or a parade resembling a danse macabre with the grotesque steps of a king called Ubu, he invites us to step off the beaten track and wander as we please. « So follow your own devices, and fly with your own wings. » Translated from the French by Samuel Martin.
