art in the public realm

Tischlerwood’s Bird Home installation was part of the Wild New Territories exhibition, curated by Kathy Kenny and Ron den Daas. Each bird home is individually made from precious timber, rescued from a skip of one of Britain’s best-known art schools and embellished with gold leaf or camouflage pattern. Tischlerwood sees her installation as having both a financial and an ecological context. For instance in Camley Street’s Nature Reserve, located next to the fashionable Kings Cross, real estate development in central London she installed 11 luxurious homes for homeless birds attached to selected trees throughout the Park. In the gardens of the Botanical Museum, Dahlem in Berlin, the context of the work was more related to natural science.
