Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others is a collaboration by Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charrière. It has been performed and exhibited in Copenhagen, Venice, and Berlin. It engages the city as a robust spatial ecology of things, perceptions, movements and constant surprise.„Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others“ includes a pigeon trapping apparatus designed by the artists. This apparatus is installed in public space to catch and airbrush pigeons as they move through the city. The pigeons are painted, dressed with vibrant, nontoxic dyes, rendered and released back into the urban environments we all share and constitute by this sharing. While the paint is harmless to the health of the pigeons, it destabilizes the safety of our perceptions concerning the roles art, institutions, and urban species—including humans, when species meet in public space, the space of their rights and of our everyday lives.Painted pigeons meets each different city on its own material terms—as a horizon of different species and perceptions which co-constitute each other, and renegotiate those terms.
