Photos: 3rd Biennial Taxidermy Show & Demonstration

View photos from the May 2nd 3rd Biennial Taxidermy Show exhibition opening and May 3 live taxidermy demonstration at La Luz de Jesus Gallery with Katie Innamorato, Divya Anantharaman, and Lauren Kane using prepared and raw materials. 

The 3rd Biennial Taxidermy Show is not your granddady’s taxidermy: road kill is a central part of the “recycled” philosophy of this unusual and enlightening exhibition, as are discarded livestock, destroyed nuisance animals, casualties of the pet trade and animals that have expired from natural causes. Other sculptures utilize taxidermy techniques in an unorthodox way to fashion fantastic beasts from everyday materials–even the recycled pelts of toy stuffed animals. Elements of technology and decoration combine to create ornaments that approach high art, not only in craft, but in concept.
