This photographic series is a tribute, made of humour and witchcraft, to felids of all races. Gleaned from the internet, nonchalantly retouched in Photoshop, these images show stupid and demonic creatures… But it is ultimately a satirical portrait of our society that the artist mischievously portrays in this book, produced for two exhibitions at the Aargauer Kunsthaus in Aarau and the Ferme des Tilleuls in Renens and designed by the graphic design office NORM in Zurich.

About the Artist
Augustin Rebetez (b. 1986, Switzerland) creates expansive, multi-layered installations from the most diverse media to achieve a poetic blend of total art. Since 2009, he has exhibited his work all over the world including the Sydney Biennale, the Rencontres d’Arles, the SESC in São Paulo, the Daegu Photo Biennale, the Tinguely Museum in Basel or the Shenzhen Independent Animation Biennale. He received different elegant awards, including the Vevey International Photography Prize, the Swiss Art Awards or the Prize Fondation Latour. Most of his books are now published by Label Rapace. Often abroad, he is based in a small village in the Swiss countryside, where he uses his large house as a studio and open artistic residence.
