An urban chicken coop with a golden roof, for two laying hens and a cock
Material: wooden construction, imitation gold leaf on the wooden roof, a metal fence
Dim: 70 cm x 70 cm x 210 cm (the wooden house) and 70 cm x 70 cm x 140 cm (the metal fence)

Produced together with Marjetka Brilej

A chicken coop was set up in the space of the Agora Collective in Berlin. The auction served as performative act to talk about serious environmental issues and banal everyday problems related to food, health, and ecology. The chicken coop with its golden roof suggests that eggs produced locally, in the city, are worth their weight in gold.

In 2009 it was confirmed that the number of people in cities is greater than the number of people living in the countryside. Growing food in cities is an important activity that can contribute to alleviating the presently imbalanced relationship between the urban and the rural. For the last 60 years food has been produced intensively in the countryside and transported into cities, but today residents are becoming aware of the fact that producing food locally helps to shorten the distances that food travels, and therefore helps to resolve urgent environmental issues such as peak oil, the loss of natural resources, global warming, and the ability to produce healthy food without using chemicals. An expansion of urban agriculture in the city will benefit both the city and the countryside as entities, but the greatest benefit will be to the actual people and nature in both of these environments.

The event was produced and hosted by Agora Collective e.V. with the kind support of Nordisk Kulturfond, Ministry of Culture of Slovenia, KUD Obrat Ljubljana as part of the the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme – CAPP – which is supported through the EU Creative Europe Programme.
