After the First Friday lunch on May 6, artist Polly Morgan will talk about her extraordinary contemporary taxidermy: stunning sculptural objects that revere and seem sometimes fearful of the animals and birds whose bodies she uses in her work.

Polly Morgan moved to East London in 1998 where she became acquainted with many prominent artists working in the area and, encouraged by their example, took up taxidermy and began making sculptural work in 2004. Having studied with Scottish taxidermist George Jamieson, Morgan began to play with and dismantle taxidermy traditions, creating profound and extraordinary sculptures that have brought her work to the attention of many notable collectors and curators both in Britain and internationally.
Art.earth artist talks are held on the Dartington Hall Estate following the monthly informal lunch gathering on the First Friday of each month, and start around 14.30. We’ll post directions here when we know the precise venue. BOOK HERE
