Handwerk

The name Handwerk is an old name for the Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor) and a result of folk etymology from falconers, who saw this bird as an extension of their hand and a tool to catch birds of prey. For me the name gives a translation of his behaviour: the use of tools. During my scientific fieldwork, I collected several of these kinds of tools, such as the branches of trees and shrubs, but also by humans placed objects which are connected to personal experiences and stories. The entire collection will be transformed into a theatre of spiritual insights.
