“In mid December the second lockdown had been going on for more than a month. The weather had been featureless for weeks. The odd drizzle, a brief, misleading ray of sunshine touching the tops of trees. I had walked all the walks originating at our house ad nauseam, when i learned that both Berlin zoos were open to public. […] When I booked the ticket online I realised what an obvious metaphor this all was: an animal confined in a small space, unable to interact with any of the other creatures behind the fence.”

The following weeks during lockdown Christoph spent carving and drawing animals and zoo-/cityscapes in his studio.
