Bon Appétit ?

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 canteen (University of South-Eastern Norway).

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).
