Cafe Scientifique, December
Stilled Life: The Art and Science of Taxidermy
with Dr. Ebony Andrews, HE/FE Researcher specialising in Fine Art, Art History, Museology, Heritage & Cultural Studies.
Wednesday, December 3rd @ 7.30pm
Cooking School Cafι, Dean Clough
Halifax HX3 5AX.

In an age without photography, deep freezes or super fast transport taxidermy was a key component in the scientific understanding of the natural world. Today it tends to be associated with sporting trophies and some the excesses of Victorian sentimentalism. Even so, the craft of taxidermy is still with us. As a specialist in museology, Ebony Andrews has advanced skills in natural science specimen preparation for display and research collection purposes – including skinning, tanning and fur dressing techniques, taxidermy conservation and restorative work, along with model making and painting techniques. In this talk she offers an overview of a practice which has played seminal roles in past cultures, examines its pertinency to natural history studies and ponders what its future might be…

Ebony Andrews received a PhD in Art Gallery and Museum Studies from the University of Leeds in 2014. She is interested in the intersections between science, ethics and commodity culture, and in finding ways to destabilise or subvert the culturally constructed nature/culture binary and put into question notions of value and authenticity and how they may be measured. The features editor for an international history and philosophy of science journal, Ebony has a particular interest in nature, the environment and animal studies. As an artist she exhibited at Dean Clough in 2008 (when she was featured on BBC television) and has given public lectures on taxidermy.

Next meeting: Wednesday, January 7th 2015 @ 7.30pm
"Dark Energy" with Prof. Phil James, Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology.

The Dean Clough Lego brick model
The Dean Clough Lego brick model will eventually use around a million bricks, be 35 foot long and have a chimney that's over 7 foot high.

RIGHT NOW, though, it's a 'mere' 15 foot long... and actually it's still pretty stunning.

Lego modellers Michael LeCount and Tony Priestman are at present studiously crafting the landscape around the East end of the half-mile site that used to be the world's largest carpet mill. You can see how it is progressing - for free - at any time during the normal gallery hours of 9.30am to 5.00pm, seven days a week.
