Fox in a Box



Suzette Field (born 1978) and Eliot Young (born 1963) are British taxidermy artists who work as the collaborative duo, Field and Young. Their distinctive portfolio plays homage to the most skilled artist of all time, Mother Nature.

Taxidermy and the beauty of preservation against decay is a central facet of all their work. As ardent vegetarians, Field and Young ensure that all animals featuring in their art have come from ethical sources and nothing has been killed for the purpose of taxidermy. Degas’s ballerina squirrels, for example, were roadkill collected from the A13 and Magritte’s fox was found at the side of Clapham Common one wintry night in December.
