The magazine edition.psd regroups research documents, autobiographical or poetic texts in order to create new narratives around plant and animal life forms. edition.psd de-categorises knowledge: botany, ethnography, history, history of art, philosophy and literature regularly intertwine throughout its pages. edition.psd attempts to develop the ethics of perception of particular situations, of moments, of what is going on. That’s not my pigeon is the fourth number of the series. moilesautresart is joined by the artist and initiator of this research on pigeon imaginaries: Anastasia Simonin. That’s not my pigeon is the first number of the series to be available both in French and in English.
“Flying rats, carriers of illness. This is how pigeons are perceived. However, these disparaged animals have a long history of living and collaborating with humans and have in the past been seen as faithful messengers, pigeon-soldiers or poultry. A quick look at a contemporary encyclopedia reveals that ‘dove’ is another vernacular name for the pigeon, adding to the list the holy spirit and the peace dove.
This publication follows the trajectories and breaking points of these pigeon imaginaries by building on Alain Rey’s etymological decrypting, a song from the Mary Poppins film, one of Ellena Savage’s dreams, and an observation of the Monument to the pigeon-soldier in Brussels.”
