An exhibition showcasing new and celebrated works in porcelain by internationally acclaimed artist and author Edmund de Waal.

One of the world’s leading artists, de Waal makes a welcome return to Waddesdon this summer. Best known for his large-scale installations of porcelain vessels, his pieces are often inspired by the collections or history of a particular place.

This exhibition brings together a curated selection of new and striking pieces, some of which were only completed this year. Powerfully thoughtful, the installations explore the interconnected relations between faith, history, displacement, learning and archives – themes which feel more relevant than ever and which are woven into Waddesdon’s own fabric and existence.

Two pieces – psalm, IV and sukkah – will take centre-stage. Originally shown to much acclaim during the 2019 Venice biennale, after the exhibition they will be presented to the new National Library of Israel when it opens early next year. This major project in Jerusalem is being supported by Yad Hanadiv, the Rothschild philanthropic foundation, so it is particularly appropriate that the pieces are being shown at Waddesdon. Psalm, IV is a gift of Ealan and Melinda Wingate to the National Library of Israel.

The exhibition will be on display in the Drawings Room, next door to A Rothschild Treasury.

Free with House & Grounds admission. Advance booking is essential: https://waddesdon.org.uk/whats-on/edmund-de-waal-exhibition/
