Signs for an Exhibition

Recently published in South Africa by Modjaji Books and available in the UK through Wivenhoe Books or direct from the author.

“Eliza Kentridge’s poems are autobiographical.  She was born in Johannesburg in 1962, the daughter of two lawyers who fought apartheid. In her twenties she left South Africa for England, where she became an artist.  Against the dramatic background of her home country’s history, her focus is quieted, small and interior.  With her mother afflicted by a serious neurological illness, she writes about family, love and place, as a woman who vividly recalls her girlhood self, gently and almost incidentally approaching one of the biggest questions: how does one live a life?”
