The Fantasy Work Of A Taxidermist On The Edge
TAXIDERMY is the chance for the living to recapture life in the dead. Enrique Gomez De Molina goes a stop futher. He reaches into the box of aniamls pieces and stitches together any two. In 2012 he was sentenced to 20 months in federal pen for trading in “cobra, a pangolin, hornbills, and the skulls of babirusa and orangutans”. His taxidermy could be attempt to traffick aniamls not on the endangered lists, or any lists. But such an notion is wrong. De Molina says his work (which sells for tens of thousanads of dollars) aims “to bring awareness to the danger faced by a multitude of species: nuclear and chemical waste, overdevelopment, and destruction of rainforests”.
Who doesn’t look at a squirrel wearing a pheasant’s death mask and think, “must use less fluoride”?
