In Pension Schlange [Snake Pension], the mechanism of classic animal photography is reversed. Instead of waiting hours for the animal, we wait for it to disappear and show the terrain it occupies: a man-made showcase, a sculptural, abstract staging of nature. What’s interesting in this staging is the simulation, the fake, the artificial as a cultural constant that can be found everywhere and characterizes today’s society of the spectacle.

The zoo, originally a leisure and amusement park, is the place where, for the first time in history, culture and nature met in such a direct way, marking our relationship with the animal to this day.
