The Fallen Sky

Ilya and Emilia Kabakov’s installation Fallen Sky (1995/2016) is a large wall of the sky stuck in the beach. With the grand ocean view on the back, this wall narrates the story of the building where an aviation enthusiast lived. According to the story, the building with the image of the sky on every wall was blown away by a typhoon. This incredible story leaves us numerous questions – Did the person actually exist? Is it true that a typhoon carried a wall of the building to the beach? Keeping us in the world of imagination, Ilya and Emilia’s work provides us a space to experience the dynamics of earth, ocean and atmosphere in this beautiful landscape.
