Claire Morgan’s Abstract Taxidermy Art

Claire Morgan’s Abstract Taxidermy Art
Lisa Baldini

In the post-Damien Hirst art world utilizing taxidermically prepared animals can prove challenging. Claire Morgan’s sculpture installations takes on this task, and sublimates the physical and emotional weight of The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (Hirst’s iconic shark suspended in formaldehyde), and turns it into lithe abstractions. Morgan, obsessed with the differing depictions of nature, utilizes suspension and repetition to turn the animal’s body from a display piece to an experimentation with light and movement.
