Birds of a feather: Kate MccGwire’s gentle sculptures at La Galerie Particulière, Paris

Amy Verner, Wallpaper

“MccGwire, who initially collected pigeon feathers on walks, has weaved her own web of pigeon associates – fanciers and gamekeepers who send the artist their birds’ moulted feathers. The variety of colour, size and type in the feathers allows MccGwire ‘to create areas in the installation which feel as if they flow quicker or slower, to create a very dynamic installation which represents the flow of water’.”
