That which we do not remember

kentridge

William Kentridge

That which we do not remember

gedane sake het geen keer,
woorde eens geuiter
keer nimmer weer.

herinnering aan sondes begaan
bly ons by
en sal nooit vergaan.

maar die alledaagse sleur
van sorg en wroeg
vir ons daaglikse brood
is gou vergete
en laat geen spoor.

The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones.
William Shakespeare: Julius Caesar

Daar is ‘n besondere uitstalling van William Kentridge getitleld “That which we do not remember” by die Goodman Galery in Woodstock, Kaapstad. ‘n “must see“!

Elementary Particles on the Pavement!

A Feynman Diagram! As seen on the pavement nearby on my walk with the Great White Hunter.

In elke lewe word,
vir baie kort,
die tweede wet,
opgeskort.

Teen daardie wet
is niks bestand,
geen lewenswil
en geen gebed.

Where are the Indians?

Too many chiefs. Who is going to do the work? This ad appeared in today’s The Times.

Deputy Directors, Assistant Directors, Project Coordinators galore. Chief This, Chief That. WTF?

Was

kers

die kers se was
verteer totaal
tot waterdamp
en koolsuurgas

en naderhand
weet niemand meer
dat eens ’n kers
met lig hier was.

Why Worry?

Die Kaapse waterkrisis. Huh? Waffer krisis? Die damme het nog meer as 30% water!

Ons ammal wéét dat 30% genoeg is om matriek te slaag.

So, met die damme met méér as 30% vol, is ons nog okei!

Open Letter

Dear Malusi

Being such a smart dresser, I thought that this would be of great importance to you. See below.

Btw, rumours that you are just an empty suit are totally devoid of all truth. We know that you are much, much more for, as we say in that despised language, that “die vere maak die voël”. That this true is confirmed by Buhle, we asked her! And she knows. Oh boy, does she know!
