  • Provenance

    The present “Cargo” comprises five distinct groupings made by Edmund de Waal between 2003 and 2006.

  • Catalogue Essay

    The current grouping of five distinct “cargoes,” seen here displayed as a single intervention in the home of the consignor, was conceived and acquired over a period of three years. There is a sense that each item within the larger group has an effect on the whole and whilst this present display is a personal response to both the work and its environment at a given point in time, this represents only a transient moment in the history of the individual pieces that are contained within it.
