[back to articles]

Action, Academy of Arts, Stuttgart (Germany) — 35 Ilfochrome prints, 25x30 cm

Die Unsichtbare Henne is the work which the project Le Industrie Invisibili has been based upon.

In a 2.5 m x 2.5 m wide and 2 m high cage, made out of white matte walls, lives a hen. Near the cage there is a white crate.

People can leave a daily portion of food for the hen and write their name and address on a nearby list. The next day they will receive a fresh egg made by the hen.
