Turkish artist Hale Tenger is doing a new art installation at Dubai Art Week. The installation is inspired by ancient hunting method, in which net were placed in the forests and birds were forced to fly low. When the nets were taken away, the birds continue to fly low – as they forgot the sky and to fly high.
Through her installation, Tenger is asking a question, “If birds can forget to fly high, as humans what have we forgotten?”
