Die Seele der weißen Ameise


The artwork refers to the book of the same name Die Seele der weißen Ameise by Eugéne N. Marais, the first termite researcher, who conducted his studies in Africa at the beginning of the 20th century. His basic idea is to understand the animal organism – in this case the termite burrow – as a „Composite Animal“ and to relate the animal psyche to humans.
