Bird Flu

Bird Flu


Bird flu is “A mental and physical trip into the center of Europe, between real and unreal fears, physical and mental influences".
A white and aseptic truck will move through the European cities, and will stop in front of involved art spaces and meaningful places. On its sides the big words "bird flu" will be positioned. Around the truck and during hours of stop in every city, there will be the distribution of a series of 5000 badges with the combinations of some words with the "flu" term: like "Art Flu, Ass Flu, Politic Flu, Money Flu, Opinion Flu,TV Flu, Dead Flu, Love Flu, Tami Flu, Bird Flu, Star Flu, Peace Flu, Dog Flu, Toy Flu, Sex Flu, Techno Flu, Angel Flu, Boy Flu, War Flu, Religion Flu, Gun Flu, Pig Flu, Pussy Flu, Girl Flu".

Since ours is the era of a communication which is increasingly daring, quick, immediate, simultaneous, global, communication has never been used to spread (and create) fears as nowadays. Television, the net, newspapers and real time news, the world vision of the destruction of the Towers, at each moment of our life we have been connected with the rest of the world, but at the same time every moment of our lives is ruled by what we are listening and seeing. To the point that we are infinitely more open to attacks, more easily influenced than when man lived his life detached from the rest of the Planet.
Related to this situation, the artist creates a study in-depth in order to underline the idea of an influence of power, prestige, media on our daily lives. And his intention is to do it by using the same communication means, by creating the case, by amplifying the information that bombs us every day and by throwing it back to people. That is why the project moves in the heart of Europe, directly within urban realities.
The project develops through the diffusion of this new lexicon, the virulent diffusion. The circulation of the project is part of it trough the movement and trough the distribution in every stop of a series of pins with the couples of words.
In the cities where the Museums and Art Space involved into the project are based, the artist presents the associations of ideas putting in guard against the dangerous and shifty influences, the mental not the physical ones: influences: the influence of money, of religion, and of Television. The extended public get involved by a white and aseptic truck parked in the metropolitan space in front of every art structure and meaningful place: on its sides are the big words “Bird Flu”, and a sound – between the irony and the real – of birds. And the action is developed through the diffusion of pins with the printed words, able to stamp, to underline the influences of the power points of the contemporary society into the individual life.

The project results of the action will be presented on a special web site at the address http://www.birdfluartifice.com, and by the Art Spaces.
