The Cosmopolitan Chicken Project is an artistic-scientific, bicultural hybridization through which Koen Vanmechelen tackles some of life's most existential questions: questions about our identity as individuals and as a species, but also questions about diversity and beauty as vital forces behind the evolution of life. The chicken, this seemingly banal animal, having co-evolved with homo sapiens for 7,000 years, serves as a perfect metaphor for la condition humaine.
