Jimmy Grima

This research will document people with the ability to reproduce the sounds and songs of the migratory European singing birds. Whilst bird trapping is a dying practice, Jimmy considers the ability to reproduce bird sounds as an intangible art-form worth researching in order to highlight its value and overseen poetic qualities. He remembers hearing those sounds often in his childhood, every time he spent time with his father in the countryside. He will look for possibilities to interpret these findings through performance, video and drawings.
