Clio & Loci by Jessica Joslin, antique hardware and findings, painted wood, brass, silver, bone, beads, chain, glove leather, glass eyes, 2010 - click to enlarge
It's difficult to pick favourites amongst all these charismatic filigree beasties proudly dressed in velvet and glove leather, but I must admit that I've grown rather fond of black casqued hornbill Almeria and conjoined kitties Clio & Loci (see images below).

On Giving Life by Ana Mendieta, 1975, colour photograph, 20.3 x 25.4 cm
So there's the MoMA going all "Uuuuh! Look at us! We have an exhibition webcam with Marina Abramović doing craaaaazy things on the shiny polished floor." and then there's those small, quiet galleries hidden away somewhere behind the BT Tower and almost impossible to find that don't need webcams but just a very poetic exhibition concept.
