Walker Exclusive Notebook featuring the work Hahn/Cock (2013/2017), by Katharina Fritsch

Celebrated as one of the most innovative sculptors of our time, Katharina Fritsch mines the history, myths, and fairy tales of Germany as well as her own thoughts and dreams to explore the nature of human perception and experience.

Hahn/Cock (2013/2017) is one of Fritsch’s largest artworks to be housed in a public US museum collection. Towering nearly 25 feet over the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden in the north end of the park, the strutting blue rooster atop its artist-designed pedestal is at once lifelike and completely unreal. The rooster can be a symbol of pride, power, and courage or posturing and macho prowess. Fritsch has admitted that she enjoys “games with language,” and the sculpture’s tongue-in-cheek title knowingly plays on its double meaning. Blurring the boundaries between the ordinary and the deeply symbolic, Hahn/Cock presents an unexpected take on the idea of a traditional public monument.
