Catalogue analyzing the oeuvre of Kosovan artist Petrit Halilaj from multiple perspectives, through a selection of essays by Andrea Bagnato, Leonardo Bigazzi, Adrian Paci, and Roberta Tenconi.
“[…] this publication contains different elements to be sampled at whim, with no one right way to read it. Scattered through it, among more traditional critical essays and images of the exhibition and the works, are a series of notes and drawings by Petrit Halilaj dated 2006-10 presented here for the first time, which run like the frames of a film whose editing is up to the reader: they invite us to imagine new worlds that blend reality with utopia, and to expand our frontiers of knowledge.”—Roberta Tenconi
Published following the eponymous exhibition, Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan, from December 3, 2015, to March 13, 2016.
