Shown alongside RE/SET at VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art, this was the first in a series of works based around the idea of scavengers. The bird featured in the video is a Red Kite, a species that became extinct in Ireland following what was known as the ‘Great Famine’ 1845 - 1849. The creature was re-introduced to this country in 2007 and is now seen to be breeding successfully. This particular bird is female and her name is Grace.
