UnicornFriedemann Flöther , 2009/2010
The unicorn, admittedly not a real creature indigenous to our native fauna, is not generally credited with impulsive behaviour. It has always been considered the noblest of all mythical beasts and tends to be described as peace-loving and virtuous. In the museum foyer, the animal presents itself in an entirely different light. Here, the unicorn can be seen in a rashly hot-headed moment, forcefully ramming its signature spiralling horn into the wall. This act, obviously driven by aggression, becomes its undoing. It is stuck and no longer able to act on its natural instinct of avoiding the human gaze.
