Kate MccGwire


Kate MccGwire‘s latest sculptures are exquisitely crafted and detailed. They have this almost mythical aura about them as the feathers are seen spread in many areas of the installation space. Titled, “Sluice”, the work consists of pigeon feathers, felt, glue and polystyrene that are cautiously put together forming many pigeon-like forms.

As the artist states, “I gather, collate, re-use, layer, peel, burn, reveal, locate, question, duplicate, play and photograph”.

  • Love this work. I tried to find out what the meaning of the text printed on the feathers is…
    I wonder what the significance is for the text.

  • Whoa! At first I thought the image on top was photoshopped, these are amazing!

  • I liked it

  • Thanks for your comments – The numbers on the feathers are the telephone numbers of the racing pigeon owners. If the birds get lost during a race they can be returned home.
