The Hunter’s Banquet 2007

Idea and Organisation: Natalie Luder, Zürich
Director of the film: Nora De Baan, Zürich

I celebrated the rabbit teeth jewellery with a baroque feast, for which I was searching 125 different recipes for rabbit. Can one have rabbit so many different ways? It was a buffet of terrines, pastries, stews, but also of sausages made with rabbit meat. Have you ever eaten rabbit tongue before?

The hunting horn sounded the signal to start the battle at the buffet, which became a sort of hunting ground itself. Who will get the best piece?
The hosts cared for the well-being of the guests on one hand, but adorned as they were with the jewellery, they also allowed for the guests to get a close look at these pieces. Although the jewellery has been made in advance, the pieces embody the idea of being the physical remains of both the hunt and Hunters’ Banquet. With such a gesture, the Hunters’ Banquet enacts a symbolic closure to this work in progress, the spectacle of which was captured on film.
