Katharina Fritsch. Rattenkonig

The earliest recorded sightings of a rat-king (a group of rodents bound together through an accidental knotting of tails) date back to the Renaissance, and subsequent recordings have served only to inflame the unsettling reputation of this phenomenon. Fritsch’s Rattenkoenig (Rat-King), is a large-scale sculptural installation, and her most powerful and ambitious work to date.
