Animal Storage (2013)
Film and digital photography
When asked to take part to the 'Bristol Unseen' exhibition, I decided to work in the Natural History Museum's store room, a part of the museum usually unseen.
Hundreds of stuffed animals are waiting down there, the plastic eyes opened forever, the fur or the feathers made almost immortal by human hands. From all over the world they have arrived here, and now they are waiting under a plastic sheet protecting them from the dust.
