A sophisticated object of high artistic beauty, suspended in space, forms a kind
of architecture with overlapping cages and rods, resulting in a structure which
changes before the eyes of the viewer who walks around it. The only moving
part of the object is a living bird.
The work tackles the issue of freedom, so important in today’s world as in many
areas freedom is still being awaited or has to be fought for.
