Named Psychopomps after the mythical creatures that conduct souls into the after-life. the link to the website of the exhibition is:

What do you think of this exhibition? Do you like it? If so/not why?

Taxidermy - A Dying Art or The Art of Dying

If you click on this link it will lead you to the website of English artist and animal rights activist Angela Singer. Look at her work and leave your comments please. I will post a different link to a different artist every few days for you to comment on using the same following questions to help you, and me, to understand your perceptions of taxidermy in contemporary art.

Would you go to an exhibition that was displaying dead animals in this way?
