Hans Ulrich Obrist visits Etel Adnan

Hans Ulrich Obrist visits Etel Adnan

'Each visit with Etel, each encounter with Etel's work, each reading session of her poetry gives me courage...' - Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Etel Adnan's career spans several decades and encompasses a wide range of media, including painting, drawing, tapestry, film, ceramics, and leporello artist books. Adnan is also an esteemed author of poetry and prose.

Inspired and moved by one of Etel Adnan's leporellos, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist felt compelled to seek-out the nonagenarian artist, and over the years a warm friendship has flourished. In this HENI Talk, Obrist recounts his fascination with Adnan, and we get privileged access to one of their spirited conversations in her Paris home and studio.
