I Was There In Arcadia - Alastair Mackie


Thursday night private view at the Pertwee Anderson and Gold gallery Bateman Street in the heart of Soho. 'I was there, in Arcadia' by Alastair Mackie. Many good pieces including taxidermy in silvered bell jars and these four globes of mouse skulls (which I must admit is not very clear from the picture). Having swallowed its prey whole, the owls digestive system will extract any nutrition. The indigestible parts are then regurgitated as a compressed pellet. From these the skulls are extracted and the sculptures are built.

Great exhibition and great gallery space.
