Liz’s Pick of the month: November

William Kentridge’s exhibition “Kaboom!” at the Goodman Gallery in Parkwood runs until 10th November. Many South Africans don’t realize how renowned Kentridge is, nor how wide-ranging his artistic production is. He is perhaps best known for his animated films - a drawing for one sold recently at the October Aspire Art Auction for R6.3 million, a world record. William is a sculptor – there are 2 sets of small metal sculptures on show at “Kaboom!” and his and Gerard Marx’11 m high FireWalker can be seen on the traffic island site on the Newtown side of the Queen Elizabeth bridge in Johannesburg.

Kentridge has designed tapestries with Marguerite Stephens, directed operas for production at the New York Metropolitan and the Salzburg Festival, produced kilometer long murals, written and directed multi-media performances. One such is The Head and the Load performed at London’s Tate Modern last year which refers to the histories of the millions of African porters and carriers who served the British, French and German forces during the WW1. The production combined dance, drawings, music, voice, film projections, sculptures and shadow play and more besides. Much of “Kaboom!” is related to this production including drawings made for the event as well as a three-channel film.

And on 20th November, at Maboneng, you can listen to Kentridge in conversation with Ernesto Neto at the Centre for the Less Good Idea (in Kentridge’s studio space – how’s that?). Neto’s exhibition opens at Goodman Gallery on 24th November until 22nd December.

Local snippets – Craighall Park

All Liz at Lancaster’s rooms/flatlets/cottages have fully equipped kitchenettes making the guesthouse ideal for long stays. And even better (apart from Woolworths and Fournos), there are 2 places within 5 blocks of the guesthouse which pre-prepare freshly cooked meals during the week at very reasonable rates.

In both cases they have a What’s App group and post what is on offer for the day. So if you are coming to stay, get onto their Groups, order before 2 and collect on your way home to enjoy in the peace and quiet of your patio or by the poolside.

How delicious and generous are these Salmon Fishcakes with steamed mixed veges and tartare sauce. Can’t beat that for a healthy balanced meal. Contact Jacqui at Dolci 082 683 8243 or The Market Place 082 449 8385. Dolci is in Clarence Ave on the corner of Lancaster Ave and the Market Place is at 6 Grafton Ave next to Giles.

One of the best guesthouses I have ever encountered

Liz at Lancaster Guesthouse is a great place to stay in Joburg. Liz’s attention to detail is amazing and she has really thought of everything (including flashlights and solar lights in case the electricity goes out, a jar of rusks, Q-tips and other bathroom amenities, etc). The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of comfy pillows. It was incredibly quiet, despite being located in the city, and the location is very secure, with off-street parking. The cottage was spacious and cute. Liz has compiled an extensive resource book with comments about a lot of nearby restaurants & things to do. It is many times more comprehensive than any other I’ve seen in many years of using B&B’s. Breakfast was excellent and included delicious homemade muesli, fresh fruit, yogurts, eggs and other hot breakfast items. We were never hungry. While Liz was away when we first arrived, John was the perfect host, showing us around, serving us breakfast and giving us ideas about the places we intended to visit. While we only had a brief moment to meet Liz in person, she was always very communicative before and during our trip, responding very quickly to any questions we had.
I can’t say enough good things about Liz at Lancaster and I highly recommend it as one of the best B&B’s I have ever encountered. Thanks Liz, John, Caroline and everyone else who made our stay memorable.
Liz at Lancaster TripAdvisor Guest Review 22 April 2018

Liz at Lancaster offers comfortable lodge accommodation in Johannesburg and is a haven of peace, comfort and convenience to tourists over-nighting before a safari, solo travellers, families with children, medical patients recuperating, business travellers and consultants staying for extended periods. Many delegates attending conferences at Rosebank Hotels choose not to stay in Rosebank hotel accommodation but rather at nearby Rosebank guesthouses such as Liz at Lancaster.
