PHYLLIS ODESSEY

i walk in the woods

Nico Vascellari “I walk in the woods, and collect the nests which have fallen from the trees.  Then I start disassembling them, twig by twig, straw by straw…Nests are the most intimate, custom-made houses one can imagine.”
What I liked about going to the MAXXI : it was full of work by artists I did not know.  These photographs do not do justice to Vascellari’s work, which are life size pieces from birds nests… they are a kind of calligraphy.

Each piece is approximately 4 feet x 5 feet

And as a contrast to this work in the courtyard of the museum is the sculpture below.
