  • FLAMINGO Alexander Calder

    Chicago, USA

    The artwork by one of the most important artists of the 20th century, Alexander Calder, is composed of painted steel. Although weighing 50 tones, it appears weightless and ready to fly away any moment. Calder takes the nomad bird flamingo away from its natural habitat and installs it in the middle of Chicago’s urban panorama covered in cement and steel, as if warning us not to forget about our connection with nature.
