BIRDFEEDERS

Brian: Yes. Consider the lilies…

Dennis: Eh, d– d– don’t you want to haggle?

Brian: No. …in the field.

Dennis: What’s wrong with it, then?

Brian: Nothing. Take it.

Elsie: Consider the lilies?

Brian: Uh, well, the birds, then.

Eddie: What birds?

Brian: Any birds.

Eddie: Why?

Brian: Well, have they got jobs?

Arthur: Who?

Brian: The birds.

Eddie: Have the birds got jobs?!

Frank: What’s the matter with him?

Arthur: He says the birds are scrounging.

Brian: Oh, uhh, no, the point is the birds. They do all right. Don’t they?

Frank: Well, good luck to ‘em.

Eddie: Yeah. They’re very pretty.

 

 

 

Well, lets consider the birds (not the lillies). They are very pretty. And they are doing all right for themselves. And, in all honesty, they are occasionally scrounging. Especially the Hooded Crows. Intelligent creatures, capable of problem solving.

We have a big colony of pigeons close to the balcony, as well as other local birds like Sparrows, Magpies and Western Jackdaws.

In the winter it gets very cold on the balcony. Last year it was -30 degrees Celsius. Food is scarce then, and even the smart Hooded Crows have a hard time.

I am inviting artists to produce a birdfeeder each for this project, where the artworks will play on and collaborate with the local fauna. The artists are free in every way in how the birdfeeders should look like, material, colour, construction etc. The exhibition will run from beginning of the winter, mid December until the end of winter, late March. The idea is to turn the open walled projectspace of Altan into a sanctuary for the local birds. I will look after, refill with food and maintain the exhibition throughout the winter.

So this one is for the birds. The Pigeons and Hooded Crows, Sparrows, Magpies and the Western Jackdaws.
