The Town Is The Venue Town Collection

David Blyth

Pheasant Bomb, 1998

Deveron Projects, Brander Building, The Square

Stuffed pheasant, plastic container


Aberdeen-based artist David Blyth’s research inquiry addresses the practice of Taxidermy as a vehicle to deconstruct notions of skill, making, expertise and amateurism.

Here, a pheasant’s skin has been preserved and a zip added to its torso. A new type of container that leaves us to imagine what might fill the carcass. The basement of the museum, a long way from the fresh air and fields, suggests intentions are secretive and harmful; a vessel for dangerous and explosive contents.
