Gagosian Quarterly

October 30, 2016

Edmund de Waal

At the Frieze London art fair in 2016, Gagosian presented a solo exhibition of new work by Edmund de Waal. This new body of work reflects memories and recollections of people important to the artist—his great-grandfather and the poet Paul Celan, or places—Odessa, Cernowitz, and Paris. In this video the artist walks us through the installation, speaking of how this new body of work reflects memories and recollections.
