dad’s siteworks taxidermy installation

Today Jade and I carried out dad’s plan for his taxidermy exhibition.
It has been a big effort beginning with finding a tree to match dad’s drawing. On the morning after dad passed away, Darren picked me up at dawn in the garbage truck taking me to Hyams Beach to see the sunrise over the ocean, and there was a dead ghost gum with perfect branches for dad’s tree! He then picked up in Wreck Bay where we said goodmorning to a couple of friends before picking up in Jervis Bay Village and Erowal Bay where we saw an old family friend who gave his condolences about dad. I felt a wonderful sense of community support.

After the week of mourning where days and nights were full of our close-knit family coming together to organise the most beautiful and perfect goodbye to our wonderful dad and nagypapa, Jade, Adam and I went and obtained the tree. It was in a very difficult to reach place but the men found success. Back in dad’s courtyard Jade built a stand for the tree and we selected the birds to place on the branches. Then came today where we woke early to pack all the taxidermy into boxes to place in the van and ute. I traveled to Booderee to collect the seaeagle and echidna while returning the fairy penguin dad had fixed for the info centre just before he passed away. The staff were touched by this and a friend came there and gave me a cuddle. The sea eagle only just fit in the ute due to the wingspan! Once home and packed Jade and I drove in convoy the hour to Bundanon and installed Barbay’s Nature Display at Riversdale. the supportive Bundanon staff were very happy with our work.
Siteworks is on this Saturday the 26th.

Dad and I have an exhibition at Gallery Envelope, a pop-up gallery in Nowra.
Once I installed the show I showed dad photos and he was very happy and excited.

My father has also been invited to exhibit his taxidermy at Bundanon for siteworks this year as the theme is the feral amongst us. Although he does not have many feral animals, he will be showing mainly native animals.
