    Between abstraction and the figurative, concentration camps for animals are one of the favorite themes of the artist Heinz Alterhöfer.


    "Chickens to express the intense, concentrated, confined life. But the power of the fleshy forms which emerge from the gesture and the color suggests instead of saying. I therefore see a flight of outstretched wings which desperately try to escape the "hell of a winter sky. Heads lowered, massed, murmuring their overflow. Round, warm bodies which abandon themselves almost resignedly to the prospect of death." Isabelle Guisan
