This Spring a major exhibition of work by Edmund de Waal and Giorgio Morandi will open at Artipelag in Stockholm. Exploring the visual and literary dialogue between the two artists, the exhibition will feature 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 will also produce a handwritten text piece, which will span the gallery walls. The exhibition will be accompanied by a lower floor library room where visitors will be able to draw, write letters and read the novels and poetry that has inspired both artists.
