What'a Bird! 

Charlotte Callis's What'a Bird! draws inspiration from the 19th-century canon of the reclining nude, Physique Magazine, raw chicken skin and The Tweets, What'a Bird! is a messy, excessive and experimental live art work that visually re-imagines the act of shaving female body hair; revealing and transgressing what is for some a daily domestic ritual into the realm of the absurd and the abject.


What'a Bird! evolved in 2015 for an intimate performance and was later developed in 2017 for Duckie, The Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
