Charlie Tuesday Gates & the Museum House Of Death

Vaults Waterloo The Vaults, Leake Street, Waterloo, London, SE1 8SW, Londra, Regno Unito
Google+

Despite never describing herself as a taxidermist, Charlie Tuesday Gates was instrumental in bringing this previously dark art into the mainstream with her pioneering performance series, D.I.Y Taxidermy LIVE!

Gates’ first solo show since retirement transports you into a fantasy underworld where beauty and death collide with nostalgia and borderline insanity. Alarming, intriguing and provocative, her sculptures are shrines to forgotten lives and abandoned pasts, where visual puns and contextual juxtapositions offer a surreal and derisive commentary on popular culture and tradition.

Controversial “animalation” video pieces will also be screened and a special live performance of Gates’ Musical: 'SING FOR YOUR LIFE!' in which real animals are manipulated by hand to perform, sing and dance in a bizarre talent contest:
A cross between X Factor and Pet Rescue…. Where the recently deceased compete for the chance to live again.

Her fashion brand ‘Mind Like Magpie’ provides the perfect complement to her sculptural work: wearable art that will be showcased alongside the exhibition. A philosophy of creative transformation celebrates the beauty in life, rather than the reality of death with her eclectic, eccentric headpieces and accessories. Pieces have been commissioned for Elton John, Beyonce and even appeared on the holy head of Cara Delevingne

***Nothing was ever killed for the use of Gates’ taxidermy or Mind Like Magpie pieces. All creatures are found dead or donated – road kill or casualties of a hideously wasteful food industry. Gates is a vegan
