Lucky Red Presents:
New Work by MIRMY: Boxes made with real skeletons
Saturday, July 8: 8PM
For the past three years, Mirmy has been producing unique artwork incorporating skeletons and taxidermy, starting with members of the weasel family (which is surprisingly vast) then moving on to snakes; mostly cobras.
This, her latest collection, features boxes incorporating animal skeletons (2 snakes, a rat, cat, rabbit, skink, fish bat and a frog) as central figures. Always thoughtful, Mirmy has provided most pieces with handy open and shut doors in case sensitive or squeamish guests arrive to view your art collection.
Before the animal rights folks freak out, we’d like to advise people that Mirmy is a proud member of Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists (MART): a group of taxidermists who adhere to a code of ethics regarding not killing living things for the purpose of using them in art.
An added treat for the evening will be a performance by Wendosa, who I am told are two charming young ladies, playing cow-punk in the Lucky Red courtyard.
All in all, a fine way to pass a hot summer evening. See you there.
