2nd Hand Reading began life as a film constructed from a succession of drawings made in 2013 on the pages of old books—a second-hand reading in which books are translated into a filming of books. It is both a narrative—it begins at the beginning and will eventually get to the end—and an acknowledgement of the necessity of repetition, inconsistency and the illogical. Kentridge has made many flip books, but this is his most ambitious, and attests to a long interest not only in film but in the relationship between drawing, photography and film-making.
