Neon Parc is pleased to present ‘Birds’, a two-person exhibition at Neon Parc City of new work by Aotearoa-based artists Rea Burton and Meg Porteous.

In ‘Birds’, Burton and Porteous use the city pigeon, which congregate outside the window of their shared studio, as a subject and muse for the exhibition.

Burton and Porteous presents these two bodies of work alongside a new, collaborative short film titled ‘Nancy Treadler’ (2022), in which they position themselves as directors, casting pigeons and friends as talent, in a theatrical mimicry of the art world the artists occupy.

Aotearoa-based arts writer Bridget Riggir-Cuddy, (cast as the title role of art-dealer Nancy Treadler) has contributed an accompanying text for the exhibition.
