Stuff Me, I’m Dead / GUEST BLOGGER

Keith Bain, author of Hg2 Cape Town, goes all culture vulture on us with an exhibition from the Haas Collective.

If words like ‘cadaver’ and ‘taxidermy’ make you uneasy, then here’s news of an exhibition you’ll definitely want to avoid. If, on the other hand, you’ve a head for all things gruesome and are tantalised by the uncanny, then you’ll surely want to catch Exhibition Macabre, a showcase of works exploring the relationship between art and post-life preservation. Curators from Cape Town’s Haas Collective have tagged the show as one in which “beauty and death collide with a sense of nostalgia and curiosity.” Expect to see sliced and preserved animals by Blue Duiker Taxidery, and photographs by Gabrielle Guy, Frank Ellis, Mareli Esterhuizen and Francois Irvine. The exhibition launches Friday night in the Collective’s new gallery on Rose Street, right across the road from Haas.

Catch the sexy-gory exhibition at Haas The Gallery, 67 Rose Street, from 6pm on Friday, 8 July.
