Fables by Karen KnorrJune 3, 2010
Right now I’m wishing I were in Paris to see this “Fables” exhibition by Karen Knorr in collaboration with Deyrolle. Animals from the famous taxidermy collection were placed throughout the palaces of France and the result is magical.
UPDATE: Many of the animals, including the giraffe, are alive! Karen stopped by and left this wonderful comment: “The giraffe is alive and well at the London Zoo! Yes the foxes are taxidermised But most of my animals are shot in Sanctuaries and Zoos. Taxidermy is truly an art form at its best it transcends the trophy and now unfortunately with the disappearance of so many species it becomes a permanent trace.” Thank you for clarifying Karen—my readers and I are such fans of your work!
