About me

Harriet Horton is a London-based artist applying neon lighting with taxidermy. The largely self-taught practitioner, tired of the traditional presentation of taxidermy lends the ancient art a surreal and contemporary, pop twist. Horton’s approach to taxidermy has always set out to explore animals in a foreign environment from their original habitat. The use of dyes and lighting allow a playful narrative to a medium that sometimes holds a macabre association. It’s this juxtaposition of organic material with neon lighting that has become her signature style.
