Cecilia Brunson Projects is pleased to present the gallery’s first exhibition with South African-British artist and award-winning poet Eliza Kentridge (b.1962, Johannesburg). Focused on the central role that embroidery plays in Kentridge’s recent work, Tethering considers the ties between her artistic practice and domestic rituals, and the notion of family and parental homes as the anchors that reel in our scattered lives.

Both Kentridge’s visual art and poetry are marked by childhood memories and close familial connections. Born into a Jewish family in South Africa, to anti-Apartheid lawyer parents, Kentridge moved to the UK in her twenties, and now works between her Wivenhoe studio and her father’s home in London. Presenting a graphic and dreamlike visual world that often contrasts with that of her brother and fellow artist, William Kentridge, her practice tends towards the intimate scale of domestic materials, mindful of the shared experience of many women artists and the invisible tether between identities of creator, mother, carer and homemaker
