Curiosity Shop #1

Dead things

When I first saw Polly Morgan’s Departures I fell further in love with taxidermy. There is something so dark and Victorian about the art of skinning and stuffing dead creatures. Polly makes it playful and fun. She breathes beauty into death, life into a carcass. The knowledge of impending decay stays with you. She is the saviour of animal beauty. She transforms a carcass’s life into the ever after. Creepy!

Polly Morgan - Bird with telephone

Quirky, witty, clever. Her sense of humour breathes new life (pun intended) into roadkill and farmfresh birdies...

Polly Morgan -  Black Fever

Ethereal, spooky, WOW!
