TRAGIC MURDER OF A HAMBURGUER BY ILKA & FRANZ!
“The project “Tragic Murder Of A Hamburger” started with its title. Initially, we just thought it was funny and went with it, almost created the story around the title rather than the other way around. As our work progressed, we noticed the more multi-facetted elements of the concept idea. The food really represents people – a realisation that quickly turns the humorous into the serious. Another layer is the fact that we chose unhealthy and fast foods due to their connection with death. The viewer sees a very bright, pastel toned and innocent looking picture but once they work out what is happening and think about it a little, it becomes very different.”
