Pavla Beranova (CZ)

Birds has been considered in many cultures as symbols of freedom. Writing as a keeper of national traditions, memories and heritage. Czech artist Pavla Beranova transformed these values into 21 lightning objects with the use of short texts and poems that she collected in 16 world languages. The light penetrates perforated texts and projects on leafs of trees, grass or city pavements. Sound and music was composed by a Czech singer and composer Vladivojna La Chia.
