In Ready Unmade, a piece commissioned by the frieze art fair, Kurant further explores the thin line between fiction and reality, purposelessness and function: the artist presents a trio of trained parrots that have been taught to use an alternative language. Both a reflection on nature behaving unnaturally and a caricature of the zoo-like atmosphere of the art fair and the self-reflexive communication of the art world. Referring to two similar but unrealized projects by other artists, Kurant also questions the notions of copyright and the marketplace.
