37TH BIRTHDAY INSTALLATION

Belfast, Northern Ireland : 1980

Installed for one day in the foyer of the Art and Design Centre, York Street.

3 February 1980


 

This birthday ‘present’ to himself and others was designed to consist of one bench, 37 chicken heads, and 37 candles, arranged in a shrine-like formation in the College foyer. Due to a slight miscalculation on the part of MacLennan’s butcher, the work only contained 35 chicken heads.
