Alchemical Aviary: Impact 10 International Print Conference, Biblioteca Central de Cantabria, Santander

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

Exhibition Dates: September 2019

Alchemical Aviary depicts the environmental uncer-tainties of particular species of birds, depicted within an Alchemical context of both purely symbolic and existing birds, metaphors for change and transforma-tion as well as harbingers of change and transmutation.

Pursued by the inevitability of climatic change, the Dotterel retreats further up its bleak mountain peak, forced into a tourniquet of ecological misfortune, it has no choice but to finally launch itself from the mountain top one last time, into eternal oblivion.
Global warming is regarded as a major threat to birds of montane habitats.
The Dotterel is one of several birds on the UK’s endangered species list.

Using Alchemical Birds as metaphor for ecological Transmutation, Alchemical Aviary was first exhibited at the Cupar Arts Festival in 2016 as an installation and series of large bird murals and multiples around the closes and walls of the town.
