Polly Morgan

Traditionally taxidermists place their preserved animal corpses in scenes considered to be their natural surroundings. Polly Morgan elevates the craft to an art form by creating vignettes that emphasise the romantic beauty of nature - a dead rat, for example, loses its association with disease when placed inside a champagne glass. Having shown all over the world, Polly's sculptures are unsettling and beautiful, charming and disarming and cut through to something more unusual in the way we react to death and art. Her preferred delicacy is rare liver.
