    Exclamation Garston Hinterlands Taxidermy Project

    Mrs Kev commented on an owl she saw 'Under the Bridge' a while ago, we discussed its possible escape from somewhere. Little did we know it was part of an art project called, 'Garston Hinterlands'.


    ADVERTISING




    Garston Hinterlands intervened in the otherwordly space under the railway bridge that bisects the suburban area of Garston. A series of taxidermy creatures took up residence on lamposts and railings, while a TV powered by a car battery relayed live images from a CCTV camera set on the landscape above the bridge.
    The discarded technology and fauna weaved itself temporarily into the fabric of life under the bridge, becoming witness and guardian to the buses, pigeons, cars, local residents and church-goers who frequent the space. The creatures drew significant attention, and were gradually adopted by passers-by until there was no trace left.
    People passing took photos with their mobile phones and were overheard talking about city foxes in their gardens.

    Default Stuffed animals in Garston

    Nice one Kev. Perhaps we can have a flock of stuffed owls on top of Garston Hospital to frighten away the developers who want to knock it down.

    "Or perhaps 'Stuff the Developers' Taff, But please tell me, Has there been no organised objection to the proposed demolition? surely the Main Block could be preserved, and additional structures added to provide a more 'up to date' facility! As for the owls Kev, there used to be plenty of them in my early years, especially around Springwood Cemetery,and surrounding area.

    Any chance of doing something with the council and putting them in the new museum?
