‘some pigeons are more equal than others’ by julian charriere + julius von bismarck

 

 

accents of colored pigeons permeate swarms of grey as part of the project ‘some pigeons are more equal than others’ by berlin-based artists julian charriere and julius von bismarck during the 2012 venice biennale. the duo have collaborated to dye the birds in an effort to change people’s perception of them being considered the ‘rats of the sky’. without harming the feathered critters, charriere and bismarck spray-painted them with a specially created booth,  where they believe the creatures will become less offensive, and in turn, more accepted by those traveling the venetian piazzas.

  • All the birds involved were fully consenting, they thought it at good method to highlight how ugly and stupid humans are.
    Hats off to them. A good point well made.
