Linden New Art, 26 Acland Street, St Kilda
(I confess, I have been meaning to write this up for weeks).
Still running until November 04th, so if you can get yourself to St Kilda, I would recommend making the effort.
Even if you can’t make the exhibition, the Linden New Art website has some beautiful photos of it, and the exhibition catalogue is well worth a read.
A few people I have spoken to have been repulsed by the slightly macabre stereotypes around taxidermy.
Julia deVille is an animal activist, as well as being a taxidermist and a jeweller – and this exhibition is both respectful (to the animals) and provocative.
TIP: In the ‘hallway’ of the ‘house’ of the exhibition are books – similar to visitors’ books. They’re worth a look.
If you go, or are familiar with Julia deVille’s work – feel free to share your impressions in the comments!
