SACRIFICIAL TIGER – 9 Plakate
A lone tiger, striding through the jungle, through dark foliage and heavy fog. Both hunter and hunted, the beast has to be careful. Yet anger is filling the air, the beast is ready to ravage, ready to attack, ready to die, ready to be a martyr. The tiger is on the hunt with burning vengeance sitting on its back. The tiger is on the hunt with the intention to kill.
For this year’s Angewandte Festival, a single artist has taken over the whole of the Drawing and Printmaking studio, showing many artworks of their wide-ranging oeuvre. Outside, on the wall of the main university building at Oskar-Kokoschka-Platz, Rath’s tiger is stalking its victim in direction of the entrance…
Unleashing a 15 m tiger is a huge undertaking for one artist in a single day. Rath has asked to have their assistants be named (in alphabetical order): Emma Peinhopf, Janka Kocisek, Julian Kadrnoschka, Laurens Seemann, Louis Wuttke, Maria Soloviova, Selma Mühlbauer, Steffie Krispin, Vivi Vinjarova.
