London’s Somerset House will display 13 vitrines from Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence between 27 January and 3 April. The vitrines will be interwoven with film by celebrated director Grant Gee, original material about the making of the museum and facsimile manuscripts of the novel.
Excerpts from celebrated British film-maker Grant Gee’s latest film Innocence of Memories, which premiered earlier this year at Venice Film Festival will contextualise the vitrines.
Orhan Pamuk said: “This new touring exhibition will tell a different version of the love story set in Istanbul through objects and Grant Gee’s wonderful new film. I’m delighted that The Museum of Innocence has been given a new life out in the wider world at Somerset House.”
