HUNNIE appreciates the series of detailed drawings by Martin Brandsma, entitled bcp (black code project). “bcp which stands for ‘black code project’ includes about 200 drawings of the tail feathers of a great grey shrike that are located in different dutch museum collections. brandsma draws the tails of the birds systematically. with its almost scientific collection brandsma unlocks the relationship between appearance, biodiversity and identity. he also pays attention to issues that concern not only the animal world but also that of human beings. our identity is increasingly constructed and registered on the basis of printing, bar codes and biometrics.” – text: mirjam westen, museum for modern art, arnhem.
