Artists Toured 10′ Headless Chicken Carcass Around Milwaukee


In 2006 artists Nicolas Lampert and Micaela O’Herlihy created a gigantic Attention Chicken! which they toured around Milwaukee generating mixed reactions.

Nicolas Lampert and Micaela O’Herlihy created a ten-foot rotisserie chicken out of polystyrene foam, hard coated, and then painted with latex paint and final coat of high gloss varnish.

In October, 2006 Attention Chicken! made a number of unannounced public interventions throughout Milwaukee at Bradford Beach, the woods, Walmart, National Ave, and other locations throughout the city.

Reactions ranged from laughter to attacks directed at the chicken (three in one day!) More interventions and a short film by Micaela O’Herlihy coming in the future.
