    About The Work

    Laura Lima uses costume and the human body in her art to question everyday social behaviors. In Gala Chickens, Lima continues to explore ornamentation and social roles via new subjects: chickens in a homemade chicken coop. Lima adorned each chicken with colorful feathers recalling the disguised revelers of the popular Brazilian carnival tradition.

    This photograph was part of an installation at the 2011 Lyon Biennial called Une Terrible Beauté est Née (A Terrible Beauty Is Born), after W.B. Yeats's 1916 poem "Easter." The work received many positive reviews and was singled out as one of the most original installations at the Biennial.
