Pigeon Service


Christien Meindertsma designed a permanent installation for Texture Flax Museum
(Kortrijk Belgium) in 2014. The installation consists of 200 pigeons spread across the building.
Her inspiration came from the traveling and espionage pigeons that were locked into the building
of the Linen Thread Company - which is today Museum Texture - during the First World War. 
The pigeons are created with 100% flax. The linnen comes from five different flax
weavers in Belgium and each fabric has its own structure.
The pigeons are hand made and filled with flax seeds.
