About the Program

Bonnie Miller's work in Chicken explores the chicken as icon in modern society. She began working with the bird to see what kinds of symbolisms would come of it. Her installation of ceramic chickens is humorous and thoughtful. There is no meaning set in the work and the viewers can and do have different responses. The birds, set among the debris of urban society (read: garbage), become food for thought as we question the nature of their relevance in modern life.
