…. A traditional family reunion of an upper-class Viennese family, the whole family gathers around the dinner table – mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins …. The dinner table is set with the traditional Augarten family porcelain, inherited from the grandparents. In the background classical music is playing.There is a lot of chatter and laughter…. While the others seem to enjoy themselves, for the ‚black sheep‘ of the family it seems that the dinner is just not finishing. The ‚black sheep‘ is already bored to death…. For entertainment the ‚black sheep‘ of the family starts drawing aimlessly – ‚doodling‘ – on a napkin. He/she draws what is happening at the dinner table, blending it with a surrealist touch – depicting the family members in grotesque situations. As the entire napkin is covered, the black sheep continues ‚doodling‘ on the tablecloth and does not even stop to draw on the family porcelain…

 

‘In every family there‘s a black sheep…’
