TARRED & feathered

Plans are well underway for my next show – Tarred & Feathered – which is opening in August. I am really excited about this as it is my first big show with just my taxidermy sculptures.  I have some exciting new pieces I have created and looking forward to sharing them with you. Chris Dennis and I have teamed up to put this show on and we have been working very hard. We are creating a ‘pop-up gallery’ and have timed our show to coincide with the Auckland Art Fair. There will be a lot of people in Auckland from the beginning of August, so we thought we would take advantage of that and do something ourselves.

We have found an amazing space in Newmarket. And also managed to secure some sponsorship from Premier Print and Pernod Ricard NZ to help us out…thanks to both of you for your generosity!! We really appreciate it.

Here is some more information about the show:

tar and feather
1. To punish (a person) by covering with tar and feathers.
2. To criticize severely and devastatingly; excoriate.

To be tarred and feathered was an unofficially sanctioned form of public display. It was designed as a punishment and to force the subject to change their ways or run them out-of-town.

In August 2011 we hope that won’t be the case and look forward to seeing you.
