Irony and death are two of a number recurring motifs not only in PIEK!'s work but also in art history in general, and in this special edition PIEK! has introduced it into another area of their oeuvre. The technique applied is simple, but the outcome implies complex ideas about mortality and the history of mankind, and although these works deny a specific anthropological or historical reading, the results are compelling, being celebratory and seductive, as well as ominous and haunting.
