Abstract

This refereed journal article was commissioned by the editor Barbara Gates following an abstract in response to a call for papers. It draws on talks and writing on taxidermy for the exhibition Nanoq Flat-Out and Bluesome by the artists Mark Wilson and Bryndis Snaebjornsdottir (Spike Island, 2004; Bristol City Museum 2005, Blackdog Press, 2006). This and other outputs formed the basis of a successful bid for AHRC research leave in 2008.
