It's about time
Koen Vanmechelen is an internationally acclaimed conseptual artist, whose practise ranges all media from paintings, sculpture and video to large bio-installations, social events and public engagement projets.
The extensive articles and voluptuous illustrations in this book offer an in-depth overview of the unique vision of the Belgian artist, including his famous chicken-breeding program, the Cosmopolitan Chicken Project.
Vanmechelen works at the intersection of art, nature and science. Key consepts of his art include diversity, domestication, and cross-breeding. A profoundly ethical artist, he is concerned about the state of the Earth and a sustainable future of all species. In his work he seeks both symbolically and concretely to open perspectives into a future where people and other species live in a state of balance.
The articles of the book are written by Rod Mengham, Hanna Johansson and Jill Silvermann van Coenegrachts. The catalogue is edited by Timo Valjakka.
Koen Vanmechelen's exhibition It's about time took place at the Serlachius Museums in summer 2018.
