'Pigeon' Sculpture

The humble pigeon has been elevated to new heights with the installation in Gawler Place of 'Pigeon', a homage to those feathery urban dwellers that inhabit many city centres, including our own Rundle Mall.

Nationally and internationally recognised South Australian artist Paul Sloan is the creator of Pigeon, which will stand over two metres tall and is crafted out of mirrored stainless steel.

Paul’s vision was to raise the status of the humble pigeon from an overlooked, ubiquitous creature to the realm of awe and wonder.

“I see pigeons as proud flaneurs, promenading through our leisure and retail precincts. They are the quiet witnesses of our day-to-day activities in the city, our observers from day through to night,” Paul says.
