María Magdalena Campos-Pons, The Rise of the Butterflies, 2021, Courtesy Galerie Barbara Thumm
Campos-Pons created an epic installation of five glass mobiles which were produced in cooperation with Fondazione Berengo in Murano, Italy. The glass objects refer to tears and drops of water, which ascend and seem to transform into Breonna Taylor's eyes, which in turn evolve into butterfly eyes.
The installation is an incredibly poetic and powerful piece of remembrance and redemption. It will be combined with large scale triptych of paintings on photographs.
