Stuffed Pigeons – Jesus

Right – a pal to the pigeons Genevieve Chua sent me this – totally fucking outrageous . Some artist called Ruth Sacks has been stuffing pigeons.

This is what her website says:

“Her work tends to reconstitute bits of everyday life to create unsettling, idiosyncratic situations. In doing so, she investigates the psychological spaces in between urban street life and designated art environments. Current projects include a series of obese, taxidermised pigeons and glitter print souvenir t-shirts of obscure small towns around South Africa.”

‘…taxidermised pigeons and glitter print t-shirts’ – eh? Stuffed pigens and poncy t-shirts? Fucking mentalist weirdo.

Here’s one of her victims – check out the eyes – totally freaked – poor dude:

Ruth Sacks – your art sucks. Big shout out to all you SA pigeons – just watch your feathery arses.

Talking stuffed pigeons – here’s another one sent to me by my mate Matt from The Londonist:

This poor fuck got cut in half and stuck in The Horniman Museum in Dulwich. Scary shit.

    Jesus! Thats no way to to be treated after death! Is there no respect? At least being smacked by a bus and then laying splatted on the road has some dignity about it….

    Elf Mandinio: I know. Totally disturbing. I wonder if the people wearing her spangly t-shirts know she stuffs pigeons in her spare time?
    Your pal Bri

    Fette: I did wonder myself – it’s the way it’s kinda looking round and slightly embarassed…
    Your pal Bri P

    Julia: With you all the way. No more about stuffing pigeons. Mart had nightmares last night and everything.
    Your pal Bri

    We at FLAP believe this not only to be acceptable, but ideed commendable work on the parts of both Ms. Sacks and the good people at The Horniman Museum in Dulwich.

    Many thanks,
