Feathered piranha by Julien Salaud

170 Feathered piranha by Julien Salaud

French artist Julien Salaud is well known for his confronting taxidermic assemblages – using a ‘mixing and matching’ approach by combining various parts of animals. ‘vieux piraï emplumé’ could be considered the acme of this unusual craft, where salaud embeds budgerigar feathers into a specially preserved piranha – carefully arranging the plumage to reflect the original patterning along the fish. Merging the features of flighted and subaqueous creatures, Salaud has created the quintessential frankenfish – corroborating humankind’s ability to manipulate nature and remain at the top of the food chain.
