Edmund De Waal Artepelag 21

A major exhibition of work by Edmund de Waal and Giorgio Morandi is on display at Artipelag in Stockholm. Exploring the visual and literary dialogue between the two artists, the exhibition features over fifty paintings by Morandi and thirty works by de Waal, including his series of nine suspended vitrines called atmosphere, first shown in 2014. New works include another hour - a collection of six freestanding towers containing porcelain vessels - and another homage to the square - five vitrines containing blocks of white alabaster and gilded porcelain tiles. De Waal has also produced a handwritten text piece, which will span the gallery walls. The exhibition is accompanied by a lower floor library room where visitors are able to draw, write letters and read the novels and poetry that has inspired both artists.
