The Bird Project 2006 – 2017 


Over a period of twelve years, Stockholm based artist Erik Berglin wheat-pasted 4982 hand cut images of birds in natural scale, in twelve cities around the world. 

For the duration of this project, Berglin sourced ornithology books in antiquarian bookshops and libraries. Their photographs were scanned, edited and reprinted. Each year, Berglin traveled to a new city for his project: Gothenburg, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Casablanca, New York, Reykjavik, Madrid, Malmö, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, London and Stockholm.
