✏Atemwende Book Summary : The exhibition title derives from Paul Celan{u2019}s 1967 poetry collection Atemwende ({u2019}breathturn{u2019}), a term that the poet equates with the moment when words transcend literal meaning. The pots possess their own evocative power, appearing as characters that touch and huddle, or face isolation. Each of the four large vitrines, {u2019}breathturn I-IV{u2019} (all works 2013), holds hundreds of pots, while individual objects and smaller clusters sit within wall-mounted boxes, girders, and brackets ({u2019}black field I-III and I am their music{u2019}), evoking the ascetic constructions of Donald Judd and Giorgio Morandi{u2019}s communities of everyday vessels on canvas. By setting intimate handmade works in fabricated aluminum vitrines, de Waal produces a formal tension between tradition and innovation, de Waal imbues the mastery of an ancient medium with a bold new narrative. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by Adam Gopnik.

✏The White Road Book Summary : ** A Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller ** "Other things in the world are white but for me porcelain comes first" A handful of clay from a Chinese hillside carries a promise: that mixed with the right materials, it might survive the fire of the kiln, and fuse into porcelain – translucent, luminous, white. Acclaimed writer and potter Edmund de Waal sets out on a quest - a journey that begins in the dusty city of Jingdezhen in China and travels on to Venice, Versailles, Dublin, Dresden, the Appalachian Mountains of South Carolina and the hills of Cornwall to tell the history of porcelain. Along the way, he meets the witnesses to its creation; those who were inspired, made rich or heartsick by it, and the many whose livelihoods, minds and bodies were broken by this obsession. It spans a thousand years and reaches into some of the most tragic moments of recent times. In these intimate and compelling encounters with the people and landscapes who made porcelain, Edmund de Waal enriches his understanding of this rare material, the ‘white gold’ he has worked with for decades. ** Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4 **

✏Chalk Book Summary : The first book to explore the life and work of painter Cy Twombly, one of the most important and influential artists of the Twentieth Century Cy Twombly was a man obsessed with myth and history—including his own. Shuttling between stunning homes in Italy and the United States where he perfected his room-size canvases, he managed his public image carefully and rarely gave interviews. Upon first seeing Twombly’s remarkable paintings, writer Joshua Rivkin became obsessed himself with the mysterious artist, and began chasing every lead, big or small—anything that might illuminate those works, or who Twombly really was. Now, after unprecedented archival research and years of interviews, Rivkin has reconstructed Twombly’s life, from his time at the legendary Black Mountain College to his canonization in a 1994 MoMA retrospective; from his heady explorations of Rome in the 1950s with Robert Rauschenberg to the ongoing efforts to shape his legacy after his death. Including previously unpublished photographs, Chalk presents a more personal and searching type of biography than we’ve ever encountered, and brings to life a more complex Twombly than we’ve ever known.
