In Dark & Dystopian Post-Mortem Fairy Tales, Mothmeister - the two-headed alter ego of the anonymous Belgian artistic duo - pays tribute to the many muses that incited its unsettling and eccentric dreamworld.
These range from artists around the globe, legendary figures and myths and a quirky taxidermy collection to desolate places where its most grotesque and often melancholic characters were born, such as the macabre Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, the abandoned unearthly town of Pyramiden in Spitsbergen and the site of the Chernobyl disaster.
All of this flows into a unique fairyland that flirts with the morbid, religious and often clownish, in which taxidermy animals are brought back to life in the most unusual ways.
