Werkleitz Festival 2019

The Wind Egg


Haseeb Ahmed, artist at the Werkleitz Festival 2019 Model and Ruin, presents his exhibition The Wind Egg until January 6 at the Antwerp Museum of Modern Art (M HKA) in Belgium. The concept of "wind eggs" postulates that animals and humans can be fertilized by the wind - a belief helt for millennia by ancient Egyptian, Arab, Indian, European and Chinese cultures. Haseeb Ahmed has implemented this idea with state-of-the-art wind tunnel technology at the Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics in Belgium.
