Edmund de Waal: One Way Or Other | Opens Saturday, September 15
Renowned London-based artist and writer Edmund de Waal is premiering in the US with his first architectural intervention titled -one way or other-. The exhibition will be presented a the the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House in West Hollywood, California.
The inspiration behind this multi-sensory exhibition comes from de Waal’s ideas around migration;
"what it is to leave one place and adopt another”. Simon Fisher Turner’s, an avant-garde composer, sound piece will be included into the exhibit. The sounds piece: "a layered memory soundscape of Vienna through its Raumplan." Other recordings for the exhibit include Anton Webern's Drei Kleine Stucke and Cello Improvisation both by English cellist Matthew Barley.
The choice of location, the Schindler House, was carefully chosen by de Waal: "The Schindler House is an idea about beginnings. It stands as an attempt to create a place for both cooperative living and cooperative practice; to reset the conditions in which a modern family could live and experiment. The last decades of traveling to Vienna have made me think of what it might mean to be an émigré and build a house, to question what you bring with you when you start again so definitively."
