Frederique Morrel

My Fear
I warned you that there would be taxidermy in this blog... I just never told you it would be this AWESOME! Frederique Morrel is an artist who recycles old needlepoint tapestries combining the found materials with fur, leather, and latex and re-creates the taxidermy mount into an object that can only be described as unique. Her creations are interesting comments on the notion of value across themes of gender, craft, animal politics, and fashion. I particularly admire the last piece titled My Dear 3...the typical deer trophy swathed in tapestry depicting the hunt. Make sure to check out the website for more great pieces and to see upcoming shows.
