'This volume includes fragments and memories of the thirty-year-long journey that saw Koen Vanmechelen create his first assemblages in the ‘80s, carry on a vast program of poultry crossbreeding and, eventually, open LABIOMISTA, the great park for biocultural diversity inaugurated in Genk in 2019. It is a story of phantasies and intuitions, studies and inventions, encounters and collaborations. A story of men and animals, of travels to either the far ends of our planet or the four corners of the atelier, of discoveries and unexpected creations. The story of an artist who found the secret of fertility in diversity and, within it, the very reason for being of his artwork.'
