How to see poetry in everyday objects | Orhan Pamuk | MoMA BBC | THE WAY I SEE IT



In this episode of our radio series collaboration with BBC, “The Way I See It,” Nobel Prize-winning author Orhan Pamuk joins us in front of two “enchanting” artworks—”Untitled (Bébé Marie)” (1940s) and “Taglioni’s Jewel Casket” (1940) both by Joseph Cornell. Asked to describe his selection, Pamuk responds, “this is the hardest thing you are asking from a lover of art—to describe with words magical objects. In fact, I am infatuated with Cornell boxes because I cannot describe them.”
