Fritz Balthaus: Nest, 2015



The object provides birds opportunity for nesting. In reference to Francois Morellets Objekt made of stainless steel, which was located at the Folkwang Museum in Essen and where birds were nesting in the 70s, Fritz Balthaus produced the work Nest as a replica in other material.
