Ange Mlinko, Don Paterson and Edmund de Waal on Rilke
London Review Bookshop Podcast
Central to this modern myth is the ‘savage creative storm’ of 2-23 February 1922, when Rilke wrote the Sonnets to Orpheus and completed the Duino Elegies in less than three weeks. 100 years on from its conclusion, the poet and critic Ange Mlinko discusses Rilke, the cult of Orpheus and intense productivity with Don Paterson, whose versions of the Sonnets to Orpheus were published by Faber (and the LRB) in 2006, and the writer and artist Edmund de Waal, for whom the work of Rilke has been a constant touchstone.Find our upcoming digital and in-person events here: https://lrb.me/lrbevents Hosted on Acast.

”The Simple Act of Going Back” with Andre Aciman and Edmund de Waal
André Aciman is the NY Times best-selling author of nine titles including Call Me By Your Name, which was made into an Oscar winning film, Out of Egypt, Eight White Nights, and his latest collection of essays, Homo Irrealis. Edmund de Waal, CBE, is a contemporary English artist, master potter and NY times best-selling author. His most notable titles are The Hare with Amber Eyes (awarded the Costa Book Award for Biography, Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize, and Windham–Campbell Literature Prize for Non-Fiction); The White Road, and most recently, Letters to Camondo. André and Edmund engage in a passionate discussion about their lives, creative process and the challenges of capturing their family histories for readers. They cover it all, from Penthouse to Proust.
“When you pick an object up, not only do you begin to understand how it was made, it’s facture, the people who made it, but you can also, I think, begin to start to tell the story about the people whose hands it was in.” Prominent Jewish banker and art collector Moise de Camondo settled in Paris in the 1870s and quickly began amassing the signifiers of wealth around him—a beautiful home, fine furniture, and artistic masterpieces. But after his only son, Nissim, was killed fighting for France in World War I, Moise decided to bequeath his house and its luxurious contents to the state in his son’s honor. The home became a museum, preserving the family’s name alongside the furnishings and art just as he had left them. Sadly, the anti-Semitism raging across Europe deeply impacted the museum and the Camondo family—Moise’s only surviving relatives were murdered at Auschwitz just a few years after the museum opened. In Letters to Camondo, ceramicist and author Edmund de Waal retraces the story of Moise de Camondo through imaginary letters written to the collector. In this episode, de Waal discusses Camondo’s story, its intersections with de Waal’s own history, and the emotional weight that objects can carry.

In The Studio follows internationally acclaimed artist and writer Edmund de Waal as he creates new site-specific work for the Musée Nissim de Camondo, a hidden gem in a quiet corner of Paris. Once a flourishing household at the centre of Belle Époque Parisian society, the magnificent building and its spectacular collection of French eighteenth-century art became a quiet memorial for the son who was to have inherited it, but who tragically, died in the First World War. Edmund de Waal guides us through his creative response to the haunting history of the Camondo family, the last of whom were killed at Auschwitz. We follow him in his studio as he works on a multi-faceted installation for a unique setting, navigates the challenges of creating during lockdown and grapples with the notions of what it means to create a fitting memorial.

33. Edmund de Waal : "Le lièvre aux yeux d'ambre" avec Pauline Baer de Perignon
4ème de couverture
Entre "La collection disparue" de Pauline Baer de Perignon (Stock 2020) et "Le lièvre aux yeux d'ambre" de Edmund de Waal (Flammarion 2010), il y a plus d'un point commun: une enquête de famille, un monde perdu, une collection d'art spoliée par les nazis. Chez Pauline Baer de Perignon, il s'agit de son arrière-grand-père, Jules Strauss, chez Edmund de Waal, sa famille, les Ephrussi qu'il suit d'Odessa au XIXème, à Paris au temps de Proust, à Vienne pendant la seconde guerre mondiale, puis à Tokyo en 1950. On suit l'itinéraire de netsuke qui retrouvent leur pays d'origine. "Je ne suis pas historienne de l’art, j’ai simplement voulu mener une enquête, policière et sentimentale, sur les traces de ma famille, juive, spoliée." dit Pauline Baert de Perignon "Les tableaux voyagent et sont témoins de nos vies et de nos revers de fortune." Choix musicaux : Joao Gilberto & Caetano Veloso "Chega de Saudade" et Charles Trenet "L'âme des poètes"
