WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?: A Solo Exhibition by Lindslee
TAKSU Singapore, 21 Nov – 12 Dec 2013
TAKSU Singapore is proud to present ‘Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?’, a solo exhibition by Lindslee. Filipino contemporary artist and taxidermist Lindsey James Lee “Lindslee” comes up with an exhibition using this famous question, “Why did the chicken cross the road?” as the title for his show. And just like the anti-joke, Lindslee’s art brings to mind, anti-art, not only because his art is about Art but rather his works are a form of confrontation and provocation that often questioned the value of art. Anti-art, an offshoot of the Dada movement is a term often used to describe aspects of Conceptual Art that loosely describes a wide variety of artistic approaches and attitudes that exhibit a rejection of prior definitions of Art and challenges our understanding of it.
His present collection of mixed media works in “Why did the chicken cross the road?” is a playful and witty exhibition that utilizes the artist’s knack for taxidermy in his anthropomorphic chickens. It is a technique that has offered him countless imaginative possibilities where he is able to express his observations, his frustrations, and laments in a world that he loves…the art scene.
