Stroll through the Gallery with Queer Perspectives resident artist Sadie Lee and special guest Bird la Bird.
Bird la Bird is an artist who straddles comedy and performance art. She has been described as a "Queer Pearly Queen" and a "Haute Couture Fishwife". Bird favours collaboration and works with a host of artists and designers to create surreal and satirical performances. Bird’s performances explore couple culture, austerity, adoption, Catholicism, class, feminism, and queer femininity.
Bird was a collaborator on The FeMuseum project, a performative archive exploring Femme legacy and
lineage led by Lois Weaver. She often works with the
Duckie collective and appeared in their anti-capitalist
neo-panto "Copyright Christmas" at the Barbican
Theatre in 2011. Performance highlights also include
LLGFF, National Portrait Gallery, Mother's Ruin, EYHO,
Trashing Performance and WANC cafe. Bird has
also been a guest lecturer at Goldsmiths, Leeds
University and San Francisco Art Institute.
