Katharina Fritsch: Rattenkönig (Rat-King)

The earliest recorded sightings of a rat-king (a group of rodents bound together through an accidental knotting of tails) date back to the Renaissance, and subsequent recordings have served only to inflame the unsettling reputation of this phenomenon. Katharina Fritsch conceived of Rattenkoenig (Rat-King), a large-scale sculptural installation, following her first visit to New York.
