Petrit Halilaj – Space Shuttle in the Garden

Petrit Halilaj (*1986, Kosovo)  solo show  Space Shuttle in the Garden at the Pirelli Hangar Bicocca  presents a selection of works from the last seven years as well as readapted pieces and new ones conceived specifically for the occasion. Setting out from the life and history of the artist and from the changes that have occured in his native country, the exhibition explores universal thems such as memory, the search of identity, and the concept of home as both a shared and private space, reflections on community and onthe creation and preservation of a common cultural heritage. It is a journey into the artist´s universe and mythology. Moving between imagination and reality, Halilaj´s works describe a world which is both familiar and surreal: sculptures, drawings, performances, videos and installations explore the tides of history and the evolution of the world around us, blending together yesterday and today, the real and utopian, relative and absolute. The show can be seen until March 13 2016.
