Forest series


The forest series has its origins in a collaboration with a director friend for a play based on Ernst Jünger’s ‘Waldgang’. In Jünger’s work, the forest forms a place of retreat and an allegorical basis for the struggle of the individual against a totalitarian system. At the same time, the forest entered cultural memory at the latest with German Romanticism (C. D. Friedrich). For example in ” Der Chasseur im Walde, 1814 “.

In Feiler’s three-part series, “Autumn” forms the deserted basis for “Germany in Autumn”. The central work is characterised by state repression during the Corona period. “Fund” forms the dark conclusion, in which only decay makes a new beginning possible.
