The painting shows a large bird carrying other birds on its back and under its wings. Thus, the smaller birds are part of the big bird. The painting is characterized by light tones of red and orange, while the smaller birds colored in shades of blue make contrast to the larger bird. All birds are looking up with their body aimed at flying. The picture is part of the children's art workshop "The Parade of Birds", which will be shown as part of the exhibition "The Canticle of the Birds" from May 13 to July 30 at the ifa Gallery in Berlin.

The Parade of the Birds

As part of the exhibition "The Canticle of the Birds"

11 Jun 2023
11:00 – 13:00
ifa Gallery Berlin
Linienstraße 139/140
10115 Berlin

Whether audacious hoopoes, ostentatious mallards or charming nightingales, birds take centre stage in the Persian poet by Farîd od-dîn ‘Attâr "The Conference of the Birds", the inspiration for Katia Kameli’s exhibition "The Canticle of the Birds".

Using the exhibition as a creative starting point, participants will invent fantastical feathered creatures of their own which they will then make using found objects, paper and textiles. These creations will then come together to form a colourful parade in the gallery’s window.

Svenja Wolff is an artist and art educator. She works primarily with performance and sculpture and is fascinated by found objects and collective storytelling. After completing a master’s degree in art history and literature, she is currently studying a teacher training programme in fine arts at the UdK Berlin.
