Edition of 150
Butterflies Eaters portrays a surreal picnic of a family of five taking place in a lively wintry field. The main course is blue tropical butterflies. We, the viewers, feel as intruders since the ‘eaters’ stare at us with their big dark eyes, Bergner’s famous trademark, in astonishment or disturbance. As in other works by Bergner, the narrative scene is enigmatic
and bizarre, leaving us wondering who these people are and why are they eating butterflies?
