Fiebertraum (Fever Dream) is one of several ‘trance’ sequences created by Katharina Kranichfeld during the period from 2005 to 2012, and can be seen as the artist ‘offloading’ her subconscious onto paper. Each drawing was produced quickly, and contains repeating, powerful elements including gun-toting rabbits, dark soldiers, hung princesses, and copious amounts of blood. The doll-children – often naked or semi-naked – who are the witnesses and participants in these dream-images appear to be experiencing a wide range of emotions, from exhilaration to dread, and it is tempting to see them as aspects of Kranichfeld’s own childhood memories.
