Not on public displayTaxidermied Lamb
This work was created as part of the project ‘Knockturne’, whereby David worked for a while during lambing season with a local sheep farmer. The project coincided with the birth of the artist’s own child and inspired him to preserve 26 still-born lambs through taxidermy. The project also included diary entries, a stall at Scot-Sheep festival and a video work emerging from a visit to a local textile mill. These works were integrated as a large scale gallery exhibition and publication.
‘Lamkin’ used to only displayed by local butchers Forbes, Raeburn & Sons, during the lambing season. Unfortunately, this work is currently missing.
