We're staying in Taxidermistan for yet another blog post. This time, we're revisiting the Dutch taxidermy artists Les Deux Garçons who I featured waaaaay back in the olden days in both the Porcellana Nervosa and Taxidermia Wurzeltodensis threads because they are so damn awesome.

And well, the two brothers have been busy since then and are currently showing brand new works at Jaski Gallery in Amsterdam. From what I understand, only the first 10 pieces of this preview will be on display (actually, I reckon it's probably everything that's dated with 2011) but I'm convinced you won't be disappointed if you enjoy the sickly sweet branch of taxidermy art.

Oh, and if you happen to have the... errrm... modest amount of €12,500 in your wallet, you can even purchase the title piece of this exhibition: L'Éphémère Tangible (see top image).

On show until November 27. All details below.
