Bird Boy Video

Bird Boy (2015) is a work of artistic collaboration between Laurel Gallagher (artist), Gwilym Morus Baird (musician) and Dom Lancaster (editor).

‘Bird Boy’ represents the importance of process over product by presenting the viewer with a non linear narrative of creation and destruction which denies a sense of satisfaction and conclusion.

The ‘Bird Boy’ project started with a sharing of ideas between Laurel and the Welsh musician and mythologist Gwilym.  This was followed by a back and forth of images and music tracks building on shared ideas of transformation, escape and the mythological stories that inform both artists practise. Laurel’s raw recordings of her paintings and Gwilym’s completed music track were then shared with video editor Dom who created a music video that is engaging but jarring, compelling and frustrating, perfectly reflecting the emotions associated with a creative process.

Feral Goddesses

“A healthy woman is much like a wolf: robust, chock-full, strong life force, life-giving, territorially aware, inventive, loyal, roving.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés




Feral Children

“Although psychology and pedagogy have always maintained the belief that a child is a happy being without any conflicts, and have assumed that the sufferings of adults are the results of the burdens and hardships of reality, it must be asserted that just the opposite is true” Melanie Klein
