de Waal

The Cambridge University Alison Richards Building on West Road was designed by Nicholas Hare Architects, and very fine it is too.  Edmund de Waal, one of the world’s leading artists working in ceramics, has installed three vitrines at the entrance.  They are beautiful and subtle examples of public art.   As I was looking at them and taking photographs today I met a woman, who had been there the previous day, but had missed them completely.  They are not subtle to the point of invisibility, so maybe she was in a hurry.

    There’s a fascinatingCRASSH talk by de Waal about this installation – or, at least, the last few minutes of the talk are on the topic.

    I came across your blog when I was looking for illustrations of the installation to show a friend.
