Library Shelf Location 18.WAAL
Publication Date 2015
Description

Published on the occasion of Edmund De Waal's 'Atmosphere' (March 29 2014-February 8 2015) exhibition at Turner Contemporary Margate. 

This new work, commissioned specially for our ground floor gallery space overlooking the North Sea, has been created in response to the changing landscape and clouds viewed from the gallery and the architecture of the space.

"...minimalist displays of coolly beautiful ceramic objects seductively straddle the old gap between art and craft. Modernism and ancient influences elegantly combine in art at once beautiful and thought-provoking." Jonathan Jones, The Guardian 
 
De Waal, who grew up in Canterbury, is renowned for his work in ceramics, in particular his large-scale installations of porcelain vessels, and is the author of the bestselling The Hare with the Amber Eyes (which won the 2010 Costa biography award).
 
 Vessels are suspended in the gallery, to capturing the changing light.
 
The piece is accompanied by Bauspiel, a plinth based work, and a new text installation spanning the entire corridor adjacent to the Sunley Gallery featuring quotes by Turner, Constable, Baudelaire and Ruskin.
