©Sean Lynch, Favorite Chicken and Ribs logo featuring ‘Chuckie’, designed by an unknown artist in Southend in 1986. Part of Sean Lynch’s A blow by blow account of stone carving in Oxford, 2014, 2016
As the title suggests, Sean Lynch’s design features the logo-mascot from British fast food chain Favorite Chicken & Ribs. The tangential logic behind the image stems from Sean’s investigation into the history of museums in Oxford. Within this account is the story of The Ark, Britain’s first public museum, located in Lambeth, London, which is now the site of a Favorite outlet. The museum collection, founded in the 1630s by John Tradescant, included a dodo and later formed the basis of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. Working closely with the Favorite franchise, parts of its shopfront from Lambeth and a collection of archival material from the company’s history were presented in Sean’s exhibition at Modern Art Oxford.
