Kelly McCallum is a Canadian born, London-based artist who specializes in taxidermy, metalsmith, and jewelry making. She fitted these two pieces of antique taxidermy, a hare and a badger, with gold-plated handlebar mustaches as part of an ongoing series of projects created with fellow artist Märta Mattsson under the name Diamonds & Dead Things.
"D&D is not a straightforward collaboration of ideas or a way to share the making of pieces, but an opportunity to throw caution to the wind and to create work in which each artist does not always have complete control. It’s about constructing opportunities for creative play, to search for the magical in the unexpected and to allow two creative minds free reign to explore all that is possible."
