Taxidermy-Based Suspended Installations by Claire Morgan
This made my Monday morning. Beautiful, thoughtful work by artist Claire Morgan. Inspiring!
Visual artistClaire Morgan, has a strong interest in the organic, in natural processes, and in the bodily connotations of natural materials. Morgan uses common materials like lead, nylon, acrylic, she also spends countless hours arranging thousands of pieces of everything from dandelion seeds, leaves and fruits to organic materials including animal taxidermy and fruit flies.
“My work is about change and the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us,” “For me, creating seemingly solid structures or forms from thousands of individually suspended elements has a direct relation with my experience of these forces. There is a sense of fragility and a lack of solidity that carries through all the sculptures. I feel as if they are somewhere between movement and stillness, and thus in possession of a certain energy.”
