Two hundred penguins filled a room in the castle Untergroeningen, Germany. For the seventh Art Summer 2007, with the theme 'the animal exhibited: the coexistence of animals' Ottmar Hoerl chose the emperor penguin. 'I am fascinated by how emperor penguins are hatched in the middle of the inhospitable antarctic winter. For an entire colony of penguins there are only a few parameters and fixed rules over a period of nine months for that ensure the survival of both young and old birds and the eggs they are carrying. They live in a system that does not permit delays. Their coexistence is self-referential. In the antarctic there is no coexistence; there is only black and white. And the penguins spend most of their time in a landscape that is white.'
