It's About Time

Koen Vanmechelen is an internationally acclaimed conceptual artist, whose practice ranges all media from paintings, sculpture and video to large bio-installations, social events and public engagement projects. 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 concepts 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 for 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.
