Festival of Arts & Humanities: Edmund de Waal

Past Events

On the Eve of Departure: Homelessness, Exile and Art A talk from acclaimed artist and author Edmund de Waal.

Edmund will discuss place and displacement in poetry and the visual arts, drawing on his own family history and his practice as an artist and a writer. Edmund de Waal is best known for his large-scale ceramic installations and his bestselling book The Hare with Amber Eyes. His latest book The White Road is a journey through the world of porcelain.

Edmund’s work comes out of a dialogue between minimalism, architecture and music, and is informed by his passion for literature. Much of his recent work has been concerned with ideas of collecting and collections; how objects are kept together, lost, stolen or dispersed.
