The eagle appears whimsically staged in the small-format photograph A silent crazy jungle under glass (yellow IV) from the photographic project of the same name, which Susanne Kriemann presented in Braunschweig. Here Kriemann's own photographs entered into a dialogic connection with found photographic material. The image of the eagle comes from the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin and refers to the "frozen moment" in photography: in an almost dramatic way, taxidermist Robert Stein and photographer Hwa Ja Götz try to breathe life into the eagle, but at the same time this reveals a moment of rigidity and staging.
