William Kentridge’s “Triumphs and Laments”

William Kentridge’s “Triumphs and Laments” at Treveterno is powerful and moving. It is also a performative, public work of art that serves as both an ecological, urban beautification project and an equally important historical commentary highlighting the duality of narratives as told by both the victors and lamenters. It is my ultimate hope that Kentridge’s and Jones’ vision will inspire similar projects and installations around the world.
