Taxidermy Puppets!!!!! SING FOR YOUR LIFE!

Recently I performed an excerpt from the musical  'SING FOR YOUR LIFE!' at the first Dark Fabrics Cabaret; A cross between the X Factor and Pet Rescue. In the week before I managed to scrape together a fox which was specially couriered up from my mum's freezer in Dorset. Poor woman..... This fox was found by my sister and her friend.  As you can see they're having a great time. The fox obviously hadn't. There wasn't a scratch on her which leads me to suspect poison!  She was a beauty.  So so stunning. Took at least 3 days to semi defrost. Here's how the puppet was made. . . . STEP ONE: Defrost Fox STEP 2: Skin Fox STEP 3: Try and make the fox look like a fox again To give the head a shape instead of just flopping around I used a badger skull. If I had a fox skull I would have used that but I didn't so a badger had to do. It's wider and shorter but by padding the skull out with sanitary towels, eventually it started to a

Debut Contemporary: CON ARTIST: Crimes Against Artists Humanity

Subtle There's  a man called Samir Ceric in a Gallery called Debut  Contemporary  on Westborne Grove that has bullied, manipulated and lied to thousands of young, naive and inexperienced artists. Playing on the fact they are desperate to make it in the art world.  Here’s some advice for free:  YOU CAN’T BUY YOUR WAY IN There is no short cut to fame and glory. You get it by hard work and hard work only and if you are willing to work hard YOU WILL SUCCEED. You don’t need to pay over 400 pounds a month (for min 3 months contract) for a mentoring scheme from a man with no background in art whatsoever… Astoundingly Samir Ceric had just been voted (AND WON) the Hospital Club’s 100 most influential people in the Art and Design category. "I CHOKED ON MY LOAD" Now let me give you some background on the winner: A serial and self-styled entrepreneur, with numerous failed/bankrupt business and absolutely no art qualifications at all. I was amazed

The last Taboo: DONE TO DEATH

 Grayson Perry recently said that the last taboo was armpit hair. Well.... what about armpit hair AND death- yeah..What about it? D.I.Y Taxidermy VII CAT GOT YOUR TONGUE?  A live and interactive taxidermy performance where we skin and stuff an animal LIVE using only what you have lying around the house. A cross between Blue Peter and an insane game show where YOU can WIN! Win real life dead artwork and the chance to immortalise a creature we have grown to know and love. GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT! Including a live band (B.Y.O ROADKILL) Me and Douglas as a young girl So...... I skinned my beloved cat Douglas whom I've kept in the freezer for 15 years ( I always knew I would bring him back to life one's what he would have wanted), in front of a live audience. This is the 7th instalment of D.I.Y.T and to be honest I've gone a bit mental. On purpose.  Pulling out bigger and bigger stops, bigger tits, bigger explosions, more gore....Over sens
