I had been eager to visit the Polly Morgan's Psychopomps exhibition after reading about her work several years ago, also it is relevant to my Context work at MMU about looking at the identity that we give to objects in different places. There are only 4 pieces in the exhibition and a definite moth ball odour. The work is thought provoking and she does take taxidermy to a different level to make you think and look at the pieces closer. They were also reminiscent of the Isabella Blow piece created for the 'When Philip met Issy' exhibition and recently donated to the National Portrait Gallery created from rats, crows and a Manola heel.
