About

Piet Parra No. 61 "I Wish" in untreated solid beechwood, linen and rope, 2014. In an interview Piet Parra once compared ideas to dreams, saying that they come to him in his sleep. For “I Wish,” Parra invents a narrative that takes place on a summer day. A character sees a beautiful woman lay herself down on a stretcher in a large green flower filled garden. Surrounded only by bird song, her face morphs into that of a bird's. He stares at her so intense that he sees her twice. He walks over to the stretcher, spilling the last remains of the wine and falls asleep. The stretcher and the woman merge into one intoxicated dream.
