Dániel Szalai: Novogen

In his exhibition Novogen, Dániel Szalai (1991) focuses on a special breed of chicken developed to lay eggs that are appropriate for utilization in human and veterinary pharmaceutic production. The exhibit of the one hundred and forty-four portraits of Novogen White Light chickens displayed on light boxes is complemented with a short video interview with the artist, also including a related photo series that documented the environment of the layers. The images track down the stages of vaccine production – the laying, the triage of the eggs, the pre-incubation, the inoculation of the viral agents, and finally, the harvesting of the amniotic fluid. Leading an investigation on industrialized farming in his project Novogen, Dániel Szalai gives voice to questions concerning man’s relation to technology and nature as well as to the concept of work.
