PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Ulrich Gebert

a Rat is a Pig is a Dog is a Boy
Ulrich Gebert’s conceptual photographs and installations address, in a sometimes critical, often humorous way, the culturally defined relationship that humans have with nature and their environment. He develops his works based on found visual material and objects. Playing with the aesthetic of various materials and display forms becomes an important element of his art practice.
In this lovingly designed artist’s book, Gebert presents current works
that make us think and smile about human beings, animals and the ‘other’.
