The Taxidermy Sculptures of Les Deux Garcons

by Kirsten AndersonPosted on

No matter where you stand on the “taxidermy as art” debate, it is beyond question that some fascinating and dramatic work is being produced in the genre. Les Deux Garcons, the Netherlands based artist duo of Michel Vanderheijden van Tinteren and Roel Moonen, obtain ethically sourced (we checked) creatures from taxidermists and vets to craft their wondrous chimeras and fantastical siamese twins. Reveling in the whimsically absurd as well as providing subtle commentary on the role of animals in mankind’s world, Les Deux Garcons fanciful beasts are shocking and compelling at the same time. – Kirsten Anderson
