Bestia Recreata

The installation »Bestia recreata« is based on an ongoing art research project, starting in 2009, which questions the daily transformation of animals into clothes or meat. In a first step the reconstitution of the viability of an »still unknown species« was simulated by the reanimation of fur coats. After the sucessful reanimation and an outbreak into the urban reality of survival (streetart intervention), the mutated animal was transferred to a zoo (installations in the zoos in Münster and Magdeburg, 2010). The film »Das Manteltier – the non-toed fur coatie«, produced in the zoos, shows the irritated reactions of the zoo visitors in front of the art/artificial cage. For their installation at Meinblau project space, NEOZOON created a fictional research lab.
