Pigeon feathers, polystyrene, felt, glue, museum cabinet
183 x 110 x 61 cm
The twisted form of a serpent-like creature lies enclosed in an airless glass cabinet, a diverting object for museum display. Instead of the usual taxidermist’s presentation of a perfectly preserved specimen complete with beady-eyed head, this animal appears to be headless, as if it’s been gagged.
This feathered hybrid defies the naturalist’s attempts at categorisation; half bird, half snake, it lies somewhere between a creature of myth, an extinct beast and a corporeal representation of the angst-ridden contortions of the human subconscious. This unavoidably human reference is reinforced by the animal’s sinuous, bodily curves, which suggest both movement and life. Is this creature dead, as the vitrine implies, or suspended, like some eternally hibernating beast, between two states?
I used to have this image as part of my screensaver slideshow at work; understandably, it creeped some people out…
Sock it Tumi!
Street art has come in from the cold, been consecrated by museums, and now continues its ascent to the stratosphere—via the luggage compartment. Tumi has a new line of carry-ons, designed by graffiti maestro John “Crash” Matos, called Tumi Tag. Wheel one of these limited-edition hardsides (retailing for $445 and up) and you’re It.
