Going In For The Kill

Reid Peppard is taking taxidermy to new levels of luxury creating androgynous jewellery and accessories out of creatures' corpses. Born and raised in California, Reid Peppard is now based in London after doing a Foundation Degree and Fine Art Bachelors Degree at Central Saint Martins. As a member of the taxidermist’s Guild in the UK, she taxidermies all the animals (with few exceptions) in her sculptural work and installations which have also been shown as part of Hackney Wicked Art Festival. Using little white mice heads and the wings of birds, 'scent, sound, texture and moving image' are often incorporated within her work.
