Tag Archives: Palacio de Cristal

“To a raven and the hurricanes which bring back smells of humans in love from unknown places”: an elaborately titled but rather adorable exhibition at Madrid’s Reina Sofia’s Palacio de Cristal by Kosovar visual artist Petrit Halilaj in collaboration with his fellow artist (and partner) Álvaro Urbano.

A metaphorical nest with oversized oversized forsythia, palm seeds, cherry blossom, poppy, carnation, and lily blooms – all based on the elaborately decorated nests created by courting bowerbirds (Ptilonorhynchus violaceus): ‘a place for the celebration of love’, according to Halilaj.
