Bishop conceived these pieces as “containers for something.” When joined the taxidermy and concrete unite a variety of opposites: soft and hard matter, real and stylised form, nature and construction. By setting one object into another, he literally created an “embodiment”. This idea of a sculpture being both an object and a vessel relates to the history of idolatry, where a form is both a representation and manifestation of its subject.
