In the work series "FylgjurZoo" Jauss&Gauger interpret the photographs by Aleksy
Aleksjew, drawn from his photographic series called "Zoo", taken at the "Tierpark Hellabrunn" in Munich, Germany. 
This art series explores the relationship of humans as spectators to animals as objects. The division between the two becomes visible in the photographs only as a reflexion or structure. Jauss & Gauger play with this idea and take it a step further, as they place a next layer on top of the painting in the form of an animal silhouette, enabling the viewer to complete the picture by themselves.
