Iris Schieferstein Uses Dead Animals As Her Medium Of Choice

Iris Schieferstein’s work can’t be bothered with traditional sculpture materials like wood, marble or metal. Instead the Dutch artist used the medium of dead animals as raw material for works. She joins fragments of animals together to create new creatures and thus gives a new face to death. We searched on her site and couldn’t find how she aquires her animals but I’m hoping that it doesn’t involve the back of the house and a shot gun. What do you think? Should artists be able to use animals in their works even if it’s a cute cuddly dog? Share your thoughts in our comment section after the jump.
