Artists + Writers
“And as soon as I had recognized the taste of the piece of madeleine soaked in her decoction of lime-blossom which my aunt used to give me…the whole of Combray and its surroundings, taking shape and solidity, sprang into being, town and gardens alike, from my cup of tea”.
[from Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time: Swann’s Way.]
Recently we welcomed the CHEAD conference delegates to eca and launched a new library display on level 0: Artists + Writers: a display of artists’ books & eca library books related to literature.
This display features artists inspired by writers, and vice versa, and includes W.G. Sebald, Sophie Calle, Paul Auster, Helen Douglas, Marcel Proust, Tom Phillips, Dante and William Burroughs.
The display also features a work by eca jewellery student Ciara Bowles.
