Bon Appétit ?

2013

A location specific installation piece. Comment on modern industrial food production, specifically chicken and egg production. On display in three variations over time in the University College canteen.

Text on poster roughly translates into:

  • In egg production chicks are sorted by gender, and only the hen chickens are allowed to live. (Kylling, 2009)
  • Chicken production is the most automated and industrial mass production of meat in Norway. (Krokstad, 2006)

Rooster chickens in egg production are either minced in a meat grinder or gassed to death (hence the gas mask).
