For APAP 5, Adrián Villar Rojas has installed approximately eighty nests of the rufous hornero—the national bird of Argentina—throughout Anyang City. Faithfully studying the natural habit of this bird that intervenes in human architecture to add its own housing system to the cities of men, he introduces the nests to both the natural and built landscapes of Anyang. The elaborate clay vessels are constructed by a male and female hornero couple in as short as five days to as long as a few months, and though the birds mate for life, they abandon the nest after one breeding season. For Villar Rojas, this avian architecture teaches us to consider the complexity of nature and her remarkable adaptations, improvisations, and engineering. Importing the architecture of South American birds to Anyang as sculpture, the artist not only connects two distant geographies, but also replaces the nests’ obsolescence with renewed potential as model dwellings for new species, kingdoms, and imaginations. Part of an ongoing project that has adorned Havana, Kalba, Stockholm, New York and Athens, this iteration is the first time Villar Rojas has attempted such a massive transposition—placing Anyang at the center of a fertile conversation among birds and mankind.
