Edmund de Waal at Waddeson, 20 April-28 October

“Edmund de Waal’s series of installations, threaded through the ground floor rooms, are a conversation with the collections at Waddesdon. Some of these groups of porcelain vessels relate to spectacular pieces of furniture, or echo the formal groupings of objects in 18th century interiors. Others take on ideas of collecting itself, how things are kept together, lost, stolen or dispersed. This exhibition forms part of Waddesdon’s growing programme of contemporary art projects.” (from the exhibition guide, available here)
