Colored pigeons in the sky over Venice

As you know, the zoo specially added to foods Flamingo red pepper to the plumage of these birds have gained a bright pink color. But from Berlin artists Julian Charriere (Julian Charriere) and Julius von Bismarck (Julius von Bismarck) went into this matter much further. They are similarly painted in different colors Venetian pigeons.

In Venice these days is the Venice Biennale — the world's largest exhibition of contemporary art. Here in this festival Julian Charriere and Julius von Bismarck, and had an unusual artistic action, which they called "Some pigeons are more equal than others" ("Some pigeons are equal, but some are more equal than others").

Painted pigeons in a special car paint-sprayer, safe for their health. Just under the "color campaign" Sharara Julian and Julius von Bismarck got hundreds of pigeons living on the Islands of the Venetian Lagoon. They fly through the city, mingling with their "grey" counterparts and causing confusion for those to whom these birds caught the eye.

I must say that not all the inhabitants of Venice like the fact that the German artists did the pigeons of this settlement colorful. After all, these birds — one of the symbols of the city on the water, and Julian Charriere and Julius von Bismarck, decorate them, it turns out, mocked the city's historical heritage.

Yes, and the environmentalists, too, are not enthusiastic about this new work of the German Duo. They are going to apply for Sharara Julian and Julius von Bismarck in the court, imputing to them the guilt for animal cruelty.

In any case, even long time residents of Venice, and guests will enjoy the multi-colored pigeons flying over the canals and molt in these birds occurs only once a year.
