As she removes the wings of the magpie that will feature in her newest sculpture, Rose Robson talks candidly about death:
'With taxidermy it's so relevant, it's there so that it forces you to think about it. Our relationship with animals. The subjugation of humans and animals. You're confronted by it. It pushes you even more. Because you're coming to terms with what your dealing with. Which is a good thing. It actually makes me think about waste and what we call waste. Throwing meat out. It makes you think about your own mortality too. It's been a big realisation. It's even made me feel anxious. It's an intense visceral feeling and has taken a while to come to terms with it. It makes you feel really human, really alive, because you are dealing with death. I'm more distanced from it now. It's more my material. I think its good to go there but not to dwell on it.'
