The Gallery is very pleased to formalize our working relationship with the renowned Belgian conceptual artist, KOEN VANMECHELEN. The artist's ongoing global enterprise, The Cosmopolitan Chicken Project is inspired by his premise that each country/region selectively cultivated a breed of chicken expressing its cultural identity (e.g., the U.S. Jersey Giant is the largest). Systematically crossing all breeds, Vanmechelen strives to create a world-hybrid chicken, reinvigorating the species with genetic integrity which domestication diminished. The artist's work poses ethical questions concerning genetic engineering, globalization and individuality.

Vanmechelen has a solo exhibition collateral to the 53rd Venice Biennale: The Unicorn , Seyola Grande di San Teodoro (Rialto), Venezia, Italy through November 22, 2009. The artist will also participate in the 3rd Moscow Biennale - Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, Moscow, Russia, September 25-October 25, 2009.
