Circle of Birds – Play – Paradise Row Gallery

The act of play and the act of ritual run parallel in human consciousness. The artist navigates the border between these through a ridiculous, grotesque dance, abhorrent in its pretense at meaning. Birds spin around the head of the artist, with pseudo-totemic undertones and cartoon imagery as he frantically runs in a circle clutching a silver bowl, eventually vomiting a crescendo of feathers.
