Opening times:

<p>Private View &amp; Performance: Thursday 3rd June, 7-9pm</p>
<p>Exhibition continues: Friday 4th - Sunday 6th June, 1-5pm</p>

Bringing together science, intuition and disturbing curiosity, Charlie Tuesday Gates will be slicing and reviving animals you have grown to know and love, right in front of your very eyes….

But there is far more to see than experimental taxidermy! Bizarre and surreal sculptures drawn from uncanny subconscious ramblings.... internal opposites and peculiar familiarities…. dark humour twists the natural with the artificial as beauty and death collide with nostalgia and borderline insanity.
Materials are picked up off the street, dug from the ground, and boiled in microwaves, making provocative, uncomfortable, yet intriguingly extraordinary macabre assemblages.
BYO road kill and you could end up taking a bit of the magic back home with you!
