Angela Singer is a New Zealand-based sculptural artist and animal rights activist. You heard that right – taxidermy used for animal rights. While the primary medium in Singer’s work my be dead animals, her art serves as a controversial platform for voicing concerns about animal cruelty and destructive human relationships with nature.
Singer recycles old hunting trophy taxidermy and adorns them with jewels and flowers in a provocative display of manipulation and exploitation. Appalled by people’s general indifference for the suffering these hunted animals endured, she attempts to “make the trophy more controversial, give it greater presence and make it not so easy to ignore.” (See more on my blog!)
