The Legacy

After the Legacy project, Au will be placed in Kwame Kwei-Armah’s garden in London for him and his grandson to enjoy.

"For me the object is not as important as the memory of touching a piece. That’s why I like the idea of Kwame and his grandson sharing the seat and it getting harder for them both to fit as his grandson grows up. As the space becomes squashed it will create a memory around the object that will stay with both of them forever." - Tomoko Azumi

"This piece is somewhere for me to sit, somewhere for me to remember, something that carries the huge framework of the last 500 years of my family along with the specificity of the literature that has moved me." - Kwame Kwei-Armah, Young Vic.
