Bird Lady Still

Geoffrey Pugen’s video, Bird Lady, is an uncanny revision of the tradition of Grand Manner Portraiture, in which aristocrats are pictured in a bucolic setting symbolic of land ownership. The chimerical Bird Lady blinks at us from her eerie forested realm, where the cycle of day and night plays out at heightened speed and intensified colour, making it clear that we are voyeurs into a world that is hers, not ours.
