Opening night of our second opening with Uri Meir

“I don’t understand why people would want to get rid of pigeons. They don’t bother no one.”
—Mike Tyson

Taxonomically pigeons and doves are the same. The difference is linguistic. Doves symbolise peace while pigeons are considered to be the rats of the sky. With ‘Do Not Feed the Pigeons’ Uri poses the question: why are you treating these birds like rats? The porcelain candleholders and the large fruit bowl are priced per pigeon.

To thank Uri we printed this visor with the title of his installation.
