Catalogue: Space Shuttle in the Garden , published by Mousse Publishing
Texts 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
This book documents the exhibition “Petrit Halilaj: Space Shuttle in the Garden,” held at Pirelli HangarBicocca from December 3, 2015 to March 13, 2016. Edited by Roberta Tenconi—curator of the Halilaj show in Milan—the book analyzes the oeuvre of this Kosovan artist from multiple perspectives, through a selection of essays by Andrea Bagnato, Leonardo Bigazzi, Adrian Paci, and Roberta Tenconi.
