Christian Dior – J’Adore (Mountain Goat) and Jean Paul Gaultier – Classique (Arctic Fox) are two of a series of three works. “All three involved copying the form of figurative perfume bottles. I liked that they were a dual image: on one hand it’s a bottle, on the other it’s a figure. I saw the taxidermy and the concrete bottle as two figures melding into each other, and also as two objects overlapping. Taxidermy is as much of an object as a coffee cup or any other thing. But they were white and there’s an idea of purity involved, and when you see the fur matted and embedded in concrete it’s quite jarring.”
