Stellar Animals: Taxidermy Covered in a Web of Stars

Julien Salaud’s animal sculptures channel the spirit of the astrologers of old, creating complex star like constellations on studded forms. He takes animal taxidermy and hand built sculptures, attaching long nails and pins to them in porcupine fashion. He then strings threads, sometimes covered in beads, between the heads of the nails, creating highly complex webs where the converging lines resemble stars. He calls the series Stellar Animals.

Salaud’s work runs the gamut of creativity, having produced a diverse collection of work. Most of his themes revolve around nature: he creates flat bird imagery out of feathers, sculptures from bone and even the azure blue, string-only installation at the bottom of this post.
