How it works


Exploring the imaginarium of Ancient Egypt as seen by century old travelers, William Kentridge gathers a series of drawings and screenshots from his animation films. His drawings, made on sheets of paper found here and there or directly on books, confront his internal geography to the important collections of relics stored in the Louvre: the Scribe, the Sphinx, the Scribble Cat or even the Mausoleum echoes in drawings of artists and travelers – ruins, pyramides, explorators, transformation of lion-cat made by Carraci, Degas, Le Brun or Crapelet.

The book is completed by the text Isis Tragedie, inspired by the Isis of Lully, along with unpublished notes by Kentridge, in which he writes about the Egyptian figures who nurtured him and his work. A DVD containing three movies by the artist also comes with the book.

The installation Carnets d’Égypte was presented in February 2011 at the Louvre in the department of Graphic Art and Egypt Antiques.
