About the product

In Böhler & Orendt’s installation “The Carrion Cheer, a Faunistic Tragedy”, spirits of nine animal species extinct by humans are making an appearance in a “transdimensional stopover camp” – evoked by a synchronic projection of nine video loops on artificial mist screens.Disembodied revenants of animals like the Carolina parakeet, the Steller’s sea cow ort he Pig-footed bandicoot are making contact with their human fellow creatures to forgive them and to invite them to follow them back to the otherworld. This catalogue is documenting the two stagings of the installation at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston, SC and the Kunsthalle Göppingen and at the same time is a peculiar hybrid of a musical score, a photo book and a spiritistic bestiary.
