Biodiversity Reclamation | Laurel Roth

The pigeons from Roth’s Biodiversity Reclamation Suits for Urban Pigeons series are in disguise. The American artist created crochet jackets, inspired by rare and extinct birds. This causes a transformation: the annoying everyday pigeon is being transformed into a bird that acquired a special position because of its extinction.  The ordinary pigeon can start a new life incognito.

This particular bird is disguised as a Ivory Billed Woodpecker, the largest woodpecker of North-America. Although, it is uncertain if any of these large birds remain.
