Lili Fischer, Meute im Museum (Mutiny in the Museum), 2001
German artist Lili Fischer’s work is based in drawing. She has continually made meticulous drawings from nature that are translated into bigger projects. For her Meute im Museum she presented a series of creatures often seen as vermin (rats, moths and shadows). Her Gallery of Moths I saw her place thirteen large cut out moths (each about 3 feet tall) and in the basement she place a Room of Rats that were human sized rat costumes. Visitors were encourage to put one on and wonder about the installation. Next to this space was her Room of Animal Shadows including more rats, a pid , dogs and other animals found on a farm.
The project was originally curated by Sigrid Bertuleit for the Museum Georg Schafer. Lili Fischer Born 1947. Meute im Museum, 2001 Installation view: the Museum of Installation, London. Photograph: David Grandorge.
