We glorify, imitate, pay tribute to and immortalise almost every aspect of Sydney through art - its landmarks, stunning environment, its people and its rich history are frequently subjects of visual art in all its forms. Upon reflection however, we realised that we hadn’t included one of our most prized, beloved, majestic and truly unique birds - the humble Bin Chicken.

Lesser known as the White Ibis, the Bin Chicken is long overdue for a place in the arts scene. Defiantly rising from prominent Sydney features such as bins, palm trees and roadside gutters, our tribute to this king of all birds is realised by metres of brilliant off-white LED neon, in much the same way that the animals present themselves in stunning variations of not-quite-really-white.

Join us in raising a glass, a handful of chips or by simply running away in terror - as the artists used to do as children - as we present a salute to Sydney’s unofficial mascot.
