  Current Exhibitions
Bill Burns: Bird Radio at the Art Gallery of Grande PrairieBill Burns: Bird Radio 
June 1 - August 26, 2012
Opening reception: Friday, June 1, 2012. 7 - 10 pm
Location: The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie

Central to this multimedia installation is a chandelier-like device with jerry-rigged birdcalls surrounded by a selection of modern chairs. When the birdcalls are activated by visitors, the sound is transmitted outside of the gallery space to be heard in real-time on the radio. The birdcalls are two-fold reproductions: not only are they devices designed to mimic the sounds of birds that have been exiled from most of our urban environments, but they are also rebuilt versions of pre-existing devices.
