Ghosts of Gone Birds

November 3, 2011

The Ghosts of Gone Birds exhibition has just opened in the east end of London, with the aim of raising a creative army for conservation through a series of multimedia exhibitions that breathe artistic life back into extinct bird species, celebrating their diversity thru paintings & sculpture, talks & poetry, installations & live music.  The exhibition will be creating a series of Ghost Spaces up and down the country to house their creative collection of Gone Birds.

There are now got over 80 artists, writers and musicians contributing work to the project, including Sir Peter Blake, Ralph Steadman and Margaret Atwood. Each one of them has adopted an extinct species and breathed life back into it through their creative talents. BioFresh partners Rob St.John and Paul Jepson have both written essays for the exhibition journal, discussing different aspects and definitions of extinction.  Ghosts of Gone Birds will raise money and awareness for BirdLife International’s Preventing Extinctions programme.
