Deborah Saunt - Essay in 'Edmund de Waal' Monograph
Phaidon has published a monograph on the internationally acclaimed artist and writer, Edmund de Waal - the first comprehensive retrospective of his work, which features an essay by Deborah Saunt.
Deborah Saunt's essay, 'Conversations', can be read alongside contributions by Guggenheim curator Alexandra Munroe, novelists Colm Tóibín, Peter Carey and AS Byatt.
'Conversations' focusses on the relationship between artist and architect and the discussions that led to DSDHA designing Edmund's two London studios and The Silver Building, which Deborah describes as:
'... an on-going conversation about duration in the city: a recognition of the combined dynamic and kinetic effect created between things, and simultaneously a feeling of gravity and memory, binding us to the more persistent aspects of physical objects and architectures.’
