Cambridge exhibition for Edmund de Waal (TH 1983): On white - Porcelain stories from the Fitzwilliam
This unique exhibition sees three galleries of the Fitzwilliam Museum taken over by renowned potter, and Cambridge graduate, Edmund de Waal. The re-curated spaces feature objects from de Waal’s residency in China last summer, pieces from the museum’s permanent collection, poetry, photographs and letters. Highlights include two major installations. The first of these, a thousand hours, is one of de Waal’s most ambitious to date and was the centrepiece of a major exhibition at the Alan Cristea Gallery in London. The work comprises 1,000 pots encased in two large walk-through vitrines. A second featured work has been specially commissioned for this show.
