katharina fritsch:

"rattenkönig= rat king" from the dia: to the schaulager... fritsch's sculptures have enlightened and frightened us.
"she often transforms quotidian objects or ordinary looking figures into something new and strange, through repetition and manipulation of scale and color. her sculptures are the result of a time-consuming process: a piece is usually molded by hand, then cast in plaster, reworked, and then cast again in polyester."

Creepy, yet totally cool! Did you know that all the Rat Tails are wrapped in a ball in the middle??? Where is the dog piece located?
