Premiering on BAMPFA’s monumental LED screen, Hayoun Kwon’s imaginative and immersive new digital animation, I Suddenly Hear the Flap of Wings, is the second work in the On the Hour program, which commissions new, moving-image works for the outdoor screen. The short video is related to the artist’s new virtual-reality piece, The Bird Lady (screening Sunday, November 12). Both center on a story that Kwon’s teacher Daniel Nadaud told her while she was a student in Nantes, France. She says, “It was like a gift, a common space that we can share . . . this experience lived by a woman he met in 1967. . . . In the middle of Paris, without the slightest concern for her neighbors, she had transformed her apartment into a veritable aviary.” Kwon will present and discuss her digital and virtual-reality works, including The Bird Lady, 489 Years, Lack of Evidence, and more, in two programs at the Barbro Osher Theater in November.

I Suddenly Hear the Flap of Wings plays on BAMPFA’s Addison Street outdoor screen at the top of every hour during museum hours, November 1–December 29.
