Art tour // The Bird Project // Tour of Vesterbro with Erik Berglin and Dansk Ornitologisk Forening

2 June @ 16:30 - 17:30


Art tour // 4.30-5.15 pm

Join us for a unique and exotic birdwatching tour of Vesterbro Friday 2 June when one of the festival’s headliners is taking us for a ‘rewilded’ tour of Vesterbro spotting exotic birds on the city walls.

Over a period of twelve years the Swedish photographer artist Erik Berglin wheat-pasted hand cut photographs of birds in cities all around the world and now in connection with his exhibition at Copenhagen Photo Festival he has done the same thing in Vesterbro.

For The Bird Project each bird is made in natural size and placed in a carefully selected location and then documented by the artist. In total Berglin placed no less than 4982 photographs of birds that were wheat-pasted in twelve cities all around the world.

For this tour Eric Berglin will take us through the streets of Vesterbro to spot out the more than 20 exotic birds in life size around Vesterbro. During the tour he will talk about the species we find, about their natural habitat and his project rewilding the cities around the world with photographs of life size birds. The project combines ornithology, storytelling and street art/street photography.

The Bird Project is supported by Vesterbro Lokaludvalg and Dansk Ornitologisk Forening.
