Gates has a fascination with old, discarded objects and of collecting... Even collecting the dead. Digging things out the ground, scraping road kill off the streets of London, practising D.I.Y taxidermy.
Gates opens creatures up to reveal their internal worlds, experimenting with preservation, manipulating the decay process using techniques like salt, gloss and shake’n’vac.
With what is left she creates macabre sculptures, involving other found and meticulously arranged objects, placed into bizarre surreal assemblages. Creating Freakish characters, a metamorphosis of their discarded lives.

Nothing was harmed for the making and or during the event. Everything was found dead and Charlie is a vegitarian.
The exhibition will be open for 3 days.

  1. I have a few vegetarian friends I would like to bring along... Such a shame you are all the way down South. Do you think anything quite so interesting will reach the cold North?
