This weekend is your last chance to see a quite macabre assortment of artifacts at the Suprette Gallery, London.
The exhibition sees the display of a number of specimens from the collection of the ‘crypto zoologist’ Alex CF. The show is his first solo exhibition and offers the public a unique opportunity to witness an astounding array of strange specimens in person. Objects which have only so far been witnessed by private collectors, such as Maxime Chattam (author) or Reece Shearsmith (actor, League of Gentlemen) who also wrote the foreword for his book, whose loan of a number of pieces will comprise part of the show.
Alex has spent the past 5 years unearthing these oddities which express the wealth of curiosity and intrigue that lie in the alternative history of the 19th century and even to this day challenge our understanding of the natural world.
Some examples include; The mummified remains of a vampire child, the taxidermied corpse of a 7-foot-tall adult werewolf, the antique glass display cases the scientists of the period used to study these species and many other fascinating objects.
The show includes a number of works, with 6 new pieces and Alex attending to offer book signings. His work has previously been seen in a number of pulblications including bizarre magazine, io9 and a variety of independent films.
Scroll down to witness some examples of this morbid assortment.
