About the talk

An encounter between artist Simone Fattal and art historian Claire Hoffmann about Fattal’s artistic practice and how the concept of “longue durée” affects her recent clay works. Fattal further reads from the collection of poems “Too Much Happens” (2015) by Kathleen Weaver.

“In my work I really experienced that duration is always with me. My work reflects this. It comes from very far; it comes from 3.000 years BC and it has transformed into something contemporary. I did not know that before I started to work with clay.”

– Simone Fattal
