Raqs Media Collective: However Incongruous

Open Air

However Incongruous (2011) is a three-dimensional rendition of Albrecht Dürer’s Rhinoceros – a woodcut made in 1515 by the German painter, printmaker and theorist – created by Raqs Media Collective.  

Dürer created the woodcut to mark the arrival of an Indian rhinoceros, named Gainda, in Lisbon, an important event as no other had been seen in Europe for over 1000 years. This being so, he created his impression without ever having seen a rhino, taking information only from descriptions from others.

In 2011, Raqs reimagined Dürer’s elaborate creature as a carousel animal, the title However Incongruous reinforcing its lack of harmony with its surroundings.
