'The Three Sisters’ (2020) is a life-size sculpture of three chickens; a resting one, an alert looking one and a pecking one. As in the work 'Sleeping Dog’ (2019), Op de Beeck here again depicts domesticated animals in an extremely everyday way: unspectacular, small, poetic. According to the artist, animals that live alongside men, in their everyday simplicity, have a calming influence on our experience of time. The title is a nod to the similar title of Anton Chekhov's famous play.
