Chicken Kit

Chicken Kit, 2002

epoxy resin

51 x 38 x 8 cm

Like a model kit, a chicken’s anatomy has been deconstructed and rearranged by the artist after eating the meat. The remains of the chicken carcass has been molded then organized and cast like a toy tank in a specific order in epoxy resin. The flat, yet not 2D, assembly of the chicken carcass offers a mental image and possibility of the reconstruction of the chicken from the dismantled bones.
