The surreal world of taxidermy
by KOD Staff
Taxidermy artists are the Frankensteins of the art world. Breathing life back into dead animals, artists such as Polly Morgan and Maurizio Cattelan find themselves quickly losing their grip on reality. Completely liberated by their medium, their creations often seem as if they have escaped from a dream or fairytale. The surreal side of Taxidermy sees owl heads on teddy bear bodies, bouquets of mice and severed unicorn heads.
