In the piece, lemniskate protuberantia, Fegerl condenses the process of intermedial translation into a sculptural work by modelling the infinity symbol in fur. The cipher for eternity is thus carried over into three dimensions and presented as half object, half creature. The fur object is reminiscent of a white rabbit, a creature that can shift between different levels of reality, as we know from Alice in Wonderland. It can suspend the conventional orders of space and time, connecting and merging both times and spaces, both the imaginary and the real.
