The animal leans the head on the bars of the run. For the last time, the chicken lifts its head and opens its beak. Small pests crawl on and around the eye socket. Halfway through the video, the chicken collapses and body fluids flow out of its beak. The flow slows down to a steady drip. The head is now bent forward and rests on a piece of green grille of the chicken coop. - Joost Zwagerman (1963-2015)

This group of artists managed to play a crucial role of significance.
