Bird in Italian is Uccello

On the occasion of the third edition of BIENALSUR 2021, Gernot Wieland develops the video work Bird in Italian is Uccello, co-produced by Fluentum.

Building on his long-standing interest in human and animal psychology, Wieland’s new video work will take Alfred Hitchcock’s film The Birds (1963) as its point of departure and intertwine it with the history of a psychiatric hospital in Turin, Italy, in the 1970s. Generally, his work plays with fact and fiction and often consists of dreamscapes, narratives, reality and neuroses related to memories and traumas, often with a very personal touch.
