The Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen is featured in an exhibition at the Uffizi, running from January to March of 2022. On exhibit on this occasion are sculptures and installations by Vanmechelen, made with marble, glass and other materials that interact with the works in the famous Florentine collection. The project that the artist has been working on for decades is based on an idea of hybridisation as the driver of life and culture. His reflections on survival of life on the planet and the need for biological-genetic contamination, have led him to create hybrids of different chicken breeds in collaboration with breeding facilities in Africa and Cuba, for example. At the Uffizi, his works – which are connected with some of the sculptures in the museum – propose extending the project to the concept of metamorphosis.
