Maggie's Centre, Southampton
For the new Maggie’s Cancer Support Centre at Southampton, de Waal has created a poetry library and a series of oak panel works inscribed with three poems written into porcelain slip.
Selected with his daughter, Anna, the books were generously donated by Chatto Books and the works directly from the artist. Designed by Amanda Levete and her team at AL_A in close relationship with landscaper, Sarah Price, the centre opened in July 2021.
