Upload image

Hackteria's Empathetic Taxidermia Lab is a durational, collaborative and explorative experimentation on taxidermy with Marc Dusseiller aka dusjagr, a co-founder of the Hackteria network. The aim of the lab is to investigate artistic practices and traditional craft with living/non-living media to reconnect us with our ecosystem and ourselves.

Taxidermy is the art of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the skins of animals for display, study or just simply preservation. It has been around for centuries in various implementations from hobbyists' anthropomorhic representations of imagined human happiness, to contemporary artists.

Intensive Workshop "Next Gen Taxidermy 2.0 Kit Making"

Sat & Sun 17/18. Sep: "Next Gen Taxidermy 2.0 Kit Making Workshop", 14-18h

During this workshop we will look into more depth of the tools and materials used for taxidermia of various different species (and feces) with the goal to enable more people to get started within this interesting and sometimes empathetically conflicting topic. We will investigate different available instructions in print and online media and collaboratively develop a contemporary kit/instruction to be shared and communicated.

Presentation of Outcomes @ Pixelache Festival

On 24 September at Omenpuutalo Lapinlahti, 11-14h, as part of the 2016 Pixelache Festival we will present the outcomes of this pre-festival lab held at Temporary.
