Some pigeons are prettier than others

Reading Time: 2 minutes

German artist Julius von Bismark teamed up with Swiss photographer Julian Charrière in this controversial live art installation: a “pigeon-apparatus” was created for the Venice Architecture Biennial on a city rooftop. When the birds flew into it, they were trapped and airbrushed various colors in non-toxic paint before being released back over the city.

The title of the project, Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others is a reference to George Orwell’s allegorical novella, Animal Farm.

(Would be awesome if they’d set up the “pigeon-apparatus” in Killarney!)
