Andreas Greiner: Monument for the 308

A monumental sculpture reminiscent of a dinosaur skeleton from a natural museum pays tribute to an animal species of our time: the Ross 308 broiler chicken. This hybrid type of fast-growing poultry was developed in the 1950s in order to satisfy the needs of the food industry. Thanks to specially mixed feed, the broilers grow to the required weight and size for slaughter in approximately thirty days. Given their unnatural physiology and life conditions, these kinds of fast-growing chickens often contract a number of diseases.

Andreas Greiner created his Monument in collaboration with research institutions (TH Wildau) and medical organizations (Charité, Berlin). The sculptural installation was preceded by a research process which made use of scientific testing technology and imaging processes such as computed tomography (CT) scans.

Andreas Greiner (DE) (b. 1979, Aachen) has developed his work around questions of the individuality of a being, which has led him to the alteration of the living: bioengineering, the manipulation of our natural environment. Using scientific methods in his artistic approach, he illuminates different dimensions of the human-nature-relationship. He deals with the contemporary interactions of nature, technology, culture and art - discussing ethical and socio-political questions of human interventions into even the smallest levels of evolution. Andreas Greiner studied Medicine and Fine Art at Universities in Germany, Italy and Budapest, he graduated from the Institut für Raumexperimente of Prof. Olafur Eliasson. He is a member of the artistic collective Das Numen and artistic duo A/A together with Armin Keplinger.
