Come and experience the visual drama of the intervention that renowned potter and Cambridge graduate, Edmund de Waal, has staged in four interconnected ground-floor galleries of the Museum.  Our group will be led by Courtauld alumna and Edmund de Waal’s studio manager Stephanie Forrest (BA 2007), who will share insights about the exhibition’s conception and execution.

 

The re-curated spaces include two large-scale interventions. The first, a thousand hours, comprising hundreds of porcelain vessels encased in two slender vitrines is one of de Waal’s most ambitious creations to date and was the centrepiece of a major exhibition at the Alan Cristea Gallery in London. The second, yourself, you was specially commissioned for the Fitzwilliam’s Chinese Gallery.

 

De Waal has selected porcelain items from the Museum’s permanent collections and placed them alongside objects from his residency in China, including poetry, photographs and letters. The exhibition will examine the history of white and what it is that fascinates de Waal about porcelain. 

 

Thanks to the generosity of the Fitzwilliam Museum for their hospitality on this occasion.
