Join artist Petrit Halilaj and Anne Barlow, Director, Tate St Ives in conversation around the exhibition Very volcanic over this green feather
Layering large-scale elements throughout the gallery, Halilaj magnifies and reconstitutes fragments from the original drawings on a grand scale to reflect on personal and collective memories. Fusing the atrocities he witnessed with his fantastical visions, the exhibition presents a powerful meditation on conflict, hope and memory.
Petrit Halilaj’s work investigates cultural identity, nationhood and heritage, and ideas of personal and collective memories and freedoms. Halilaj lives and works between Germany, Kosovo and Italy. His work encompasses sculpture, video, drawing and text, as well as traditional fabrics and materials.
This event includes BSL interpretation.
