Vier Personen stehen in einem Gebilde, das einem übergroßen Puppenhaus ähnelt. Sie tragen Tierkostüme aus Latex, die in comichafter Ästhetik daherkommen. In der Mitte des Bildes stehen eine Bäuerin und ein Schwein im Latexkostüm und küssen sich. Die Bäuerin hat ein chinesisches Kochmesser in der Hand. Links im Bild steht ein übergroßer aufblasbarer Hund aus Latex.

Welcome to the world of Saeborg! Here oddly sweet animals made of bright latex all live together. A giant sow gives birth to piglets, a sick dog has unpredictable accidents, dung beetles frolic in a pile of poo. Audiences of all ages are invited to visit this unique animal world and to make friends with its inhabitants without the need of human language. Motivated by a desire to overcome the boundaries of the human body and fixed identities, Saeborg designs quirky full-body costumes with which she creates a fantasy world where livestock at the bottom of the food chain live happy lives. In doing so, the artist questions the relationship between humans and animals on multiple levels, while also offering the youngest visitors a colorful gateway experience to artistic environments.

About the Artist(s)

Saeborg regards herself as an incomplete cyborg: half human, half toy. She creates latex body suits as extensions of her own skin, in which she embodies toy-like figures and stages performances in a range of artistic contexts. She creates colorful dystopias inspired by the most basic creatures of our ecosystem. Her most recent works include ‘Cycle of L’ for the Museum of Art, Kochi (2020) and ‘House of L’ for the Aichi Triennale (2019). She was invited to the Tasmanian Dark Mofo Festival in 2019 and the 6th Athens Biennale “ANTI” in 2018.
