This fascinating time-lapse video documents the extremely labor-intensive ten-day installation of Nadia Kaabi-Linke’s suspended sculpture Flying Carpets (2011) at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. It details some of the artworks’ numerous component parts, and reveals how spotlights are used to cast its shadows on the surrounding walls. The work is part of the exhibition But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa, curated by Sara Raza.
