Description:
This is the catalog for a 1997 exhibition Flying Over Water curated by British director Peter Greenaway at the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona. Centered around the mythological character Icarus, it’s a richly illustrated exploration of the universal desire for man made flight. Packed with visual imagery drawn from art and aviation history alongside essays and images from the exhibition, it’s as kaleidoscopic and encyclopedic as Greenaway’s best films.
