D.I.Y Taxidermy VII:
CAT GOT YOUR TONGUE?
The Book Club
Tickets can be bought
WARNING: Not for the faint hearted, weak stomached or easily offended. ….
Banned from Germany, hailed as a macabre genius on the underground scene with some videos so twisted they make you horny and sick at the same time. . .C.T.G is back- with a CAT in another truly insane addition of D.I.Y Taxidermy:
An interactive and tongue in cheek taxidermy show/demonstration/
A bizarre cross between Blue Peter and an insane game show where YOU can WIN!
Win real life dead artwork in the bizarre but hilarious raffle:
'LIFE! DEATH! PRIZES!'
And EAT the discarded remains as an in house chef cooks up a tasty treat during the interval.. . . The show gives a truly personal taste of life and death.
This exploration of the manic and macabre is guaranteed to spark debate on the boundaries of taste, ethics and the concept of controversy in itself.
Through the medium of performance, video and story telling, you are taken deeper than ever into this seemingly dark art and mind of an artist.
Not a traditional taxidermist C.T.G has astonishingly been credited as one of the top 5 U.K taxidermists alongside Polly Morgan and Walter Potter (http://
C.T.G’s artwork has appeared on the cover of DESIGN WEEK, inside TIME OUT, THE INDEPENDENT, THE GUARDIAN, METRO, TNT, NOTION, BIZARRE MAGAZINE, DAZED AND CONFUSED, VICE, MIXMAG, CNR T.V, She has worked with DIESEL, BBC FILM, FILM LONDON, FUTURE CINEMA, LOST LECTURES, ARCHITECTURAL SOCIETY and performed to thousands of people.
• All animals were found dead, donated, roadkill or refuse from a hideously wasteful food/fur/cosmetics/ industry. Previously a vegetarian for 12 years, Charlie Tuesday Gates became a vegan after experiencing some simple facts of unseen life. C.T.G believes that life is most precious gift of all and shouldn’t be needlessly wasted. . Recycling the lives that have been silently lost. Cheap and meaningless. A product to be used and manipulated for commercial gain . Pointless sensationalism and desensitisation from the reality’s of real life at the expense of the creatures and the world around us.
• Gates’ work focus on the reality’s of death rather than creating illusions of life.
Expect to have your mind and heart blown apart and never be able to look at roadkill or your dinner in the same way again.
