marmite art

you may remember a while ago I posted about taxidermy, 
and my growing love for it.
I have since discovered that others do not feel the same, 
in fact they feel the complete opposite.
quite the group dividing topic it seems.

Today I was looking on the rather wonderful
Ponystep website and came across an article entitled
The Amazing Art of

Well. Wow. Wee.

"If you were to find yourself in Marylebone over the coming weeks, keep an eye out for the birds. Not the pigeons hobbling aimlessly outside the chi-chi cafes on the high street, but the serene, lifeless chicks that hang suspended from miniature balloons within their own bell jars in a window on Hinde St.

The window invites visitors and passers-by to Other Criteria, the art and publishing venture set up by Damien Hirst, Hugh Allan and Frank Dunphy, while the curious feathered subjects feature in Still Birth, the latest series of works by London-based artist Polly Morgan."

 There is just something so painfully beautiful about these pieces.

They are shocking and heartbreaking and wonderful, all at the same time. 

and I simply love them.
