Lot Essay

‘They started off as two dimensional black torn shapes of horses in paper, which became three dimensional table top equestrian sculptures, and later they were the basis of a large scale tapestries of the Nose on his horse going through different European countries. So it existed as tapestries, as bronzes, as etchings that I was using to think through different adventures and different iterations of the Nose, while working on the opera project.’ WILLIAM KENTRIDGE
