This fascinating documentary by Joris Gijsen takes us into the unusual and daring world of renowned conceptual artist Koen Vanmechelen. The founder of Labiomista in Belgium, an arts centre that brings together art and science, Vanmechelen uses science to inform his artistic practices in creating works inspired by the world of birds. A portrait of a unique artist.
