Mothmeister takes on selfie culture with surrealist exhibitionism

Back to Blogs

Mothmeister creates Wounderland – a weird and wonderful universe. They portray anonymous, ugly masked creatures as a reaction against the dominant exhibitionism of the selfie culture and beauty standards marketed by the mass media—appropriately enough on Instagram.

They are passionate taxidermy collectors which is why their lonely characters are, most of the time, accompanied by mounted animals. The duo reincarnates the dead creatures into fairy tale figures by dressing them up like the Victorian taxidermist Walter Potter did.
