Koen Vanmechelen

Koen Vanmechelen was born in Sint-Truide, Belgium. Since childhood he was interested in sculpture and science, and he has combined the branches in a project that enters questions about race, species and individuality. In the penetrating Cosmopolitan Chicken Project he tries to create a universal chicken by breeding with each other, in his laboratory/studio, separate species of chicken from different parts of the world. He has made sculptures in different materials, including glass, to represent the theme of chicken breeding. Vanmechelen has exhibited at many important galleries and museums of contemporary art, and the exhibitions have been combined with work shops to discuss the scientific, philosophical and ethical questions involved in the project.
