LONDON: CHARLIE TUESDAY GATESOctober 6, 2012
Charlie Tuesday Gates is a vegan self-taught taxidermist and artist, living and working in London, with a distate for waste and a genuine affection for the critters she uses in her art.
All the animals Charlie works with she sources ethically, and she pairs a fascination with memories, urban decay and the natural world with a wicked sense of humour to bring her pieces to life, as it were. We went to her studio to find out about how she got started and why she’s obsessed with Jordan’s Pussy…
If you’re around in London on 30th October, head to The Book Club to catch her live show. Bring a strong stomach – there’s audience participation and a cook-off using discarded parts of the animals being stuffed – we told you she hates waste!
