Does a kangaroo have feathers? Can a fish have fur?
Can things be different from what you know, this series of sculptures ask?
The immaculate taxidermist animals are convincingly realistic and therefore seem to suggest another truth or possibility of what is real.

These sculptures are amongst the earliest work by Søren Dahlgaard, 1996, and were featured at Den Frie Centre for Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, the same year.
