Chiba, a Japanese Akita rescue dog and a roving ‘barkitect’ sniffs out spaces of interest…

\,,,,> I walk with my nose close to the pavement. I was surprised to smell a live hen coming from a shop. Except this shop is a gallery with a show called Chicken Museum. Imagery from the web typical of that which saturates our everyday lives is placed next to real live chickens in a bizarre artistic ‘pen’ which is at once a ‘museum’ and a living environment. Offsetting this artistic juxtaposition of art and animal is the garish trash aesthetic of everyday fast food consumption.
