Edmund de Waal: ten thousand things

Regular price Regular price $100

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Edmund de Waal: ten thousand things at Gagosian, Beverly Hills. It features forty new works by the artist in which he draws inspiration from the poetry of Paul Celan; the musical compositions of John Cage; and the Schindler House in Los Angeles, a revolutionary building from 1922 by the Viennese émigré architect Rudolph Schindler, which was important to Cage.

The works feature sequences of thrown porcelain vessels glazed in shades of white, cream, celadon, and a newly developed palette of textured metallic blacks, contained by various framing devices in steel and aluminum. For the first time, de Waal combines his porcelain with steel, lead, and plaster blocks, creating a new kind of dialogue between raw materials within a sculptural framework and the architectural space that they occupy.

The volume includes a text by Joan Simon.
