Colored Pigeons

Julius von Bismarck und Julian Charriere haben während der Biennale in Venedig Tauben gefärbt. Schicke Arbeit!

To coincide with this year's Venice Biennale, Berlin-based artists Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charriere decided to dye 35 of the local pigeons to give them a new life as beautiful tropical birds. To do this, a special (animal friendly) "Pigeon Apparatus" was assembled which featured a conveyor belt mechanism to take the bird inside where they were automatically sprayed with non-harmful dyes. Once dyed a randomly selected assortment of bright colours, the bird was released once again to mingle with the other (now rather dull looking) pigeons in the wild.

SOME PIGEONS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS
