Daniëlle Frenken – Owner & Taxidermist

Daniëlle has always been fascinated by the animal kingdom. It fascinates her that humankind has the desire to document, preserve, examine, exhibit, and integrate this beauty in the artificial life of human. She started with taxidermy 5 years ago to integrate mounted birds in her sculptural work. She went to the HKU (visual art in design and education) and University Utrecht (Masters art policy and management) Nowadays she is a fulltime taxidermist. She likes to travel and meet other taxidermist over the world and learn new techniques. Beside the scientific function of taxidermy she sees her mounted birds as statement pieces designed to be shown off in the living room. She tries to capture beauty and life  in her work and carefully combines the wood and marble so it becomes one piece.

In dit eerste programma staat de bijzonderste soort centraal: de vogelaar zelf. Wat drijft hem of haar om in volledig groen alle uithoeken van tuin, bos en berggebied af te speuren naar dat ene gesnavelde diertje?
