french artist julien salaud is well known for his confronting taxidermic assemblages - using a ‘mixing and matching’ approach by combining various parts of animals. ‘vieux piraï emplumé’ could be considered the acme of this unusual craft, where salaud embeds budgerigar feathers into a specially preserved piranha - carefully arranging the plumage to reflect the original patterning along the fish. merging the features of flighted and subaqueous creatures, salaud has created the quintessential frankenfish - corroborating humankind’s ability to manipulate nature and remain at the top of the food chain.
