petrit halilaj - very volcanic over this green feather

On the occasion of the Year of Mental Health, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum presents a solo show by the artist Petrit Halilaj. As a child, the artist lived through the war in Kosovo and produced several drawings during the conflict, while he was accompanied by a child psychiatrist in a refugee camp. A year later and with an artistic practice, he rediscoversed his drawings and adapted them into a large immersive installation that questions collective and individual memory. By sharing a sensitive and personal account of a major conflict of the 20th century, the museum wishes to contribute to a collective reflection on mental health and resilience.
