The showy spectacle brought to life by Melbourne artist Josh Robbins calls on us to contemplate a world far wilder, freer and more capricious than any normal urban existence. These are not your common garden variety of sparrow or pigeon, but rather the result of a special sort of imaginary natural selection. Full of daring individuality, they are transformational shape-shifters, each fashioned according to the artist’s own desire for beauty and aesthetic pleasure.
