“’In Lieu of Flowers’ began when I came across a book of Victorian taxidermy. Rabbits, dogs, kittens, rats and other common animals had been stuffed and placed into nursery rhyme tableau. Animals born with deformities were preserved under glass domes. The images were both wistful and profoundly sad. This show explores our very curious relationship to the natural world and seeks to give those long-gone animals an alternate narrative.”
