PIGEONS(HOMING BIRDS)AND BELONGING: WALKER ART GALLERY: BIENNIAL 2012 (CONTD).BY STEVEN BENSON

A pigeon roosts amongst the art work

Pigeons….seen as pests/vermin; but also: homing birds; coming back to where they belong… but unwelcome (usually; unless you like feeding them, cf. those wonderful eccentrics)…i watched a pigeon struggle once : it had foot rot, leaving only one foot to hobble upon; it was vulnerable…WE are vulnerable.. where is our home?: we make our OWN homes, like the pigeons; and we can transfigure them into beautiful ecstatic colours; pigeons are welcome, at least in the Walker Art Gallery right now

A flock of (welcome)unexpected guests , a flock of multi-coloured pigeons. I love pigeons
