Polly Morgan's intimacies

polly_morgan.jpgPolly Morgan, a young British taxidermy artist, creates tiny intimacies and delicate habitats all with a heavy lick of morbid beauty.  In an interview with the Telegraph in April 2008, Morgan describes her work: "What [taxidermists] are trying to do is to recreate a wildlife image in 3D, a classic pose, something you'd see in the countryside. I am more interested in the moment between something dying and decaying - anything between a few hours and a week. There's something beautiful about that."   Her lastest exhibition "You dig the tunnel; I'll hide the soil" is at the White Cube in Hoxton, London until May 10th, 2008.
