The taxidermy is a method of storing animal skins; It is skinned from the carcass of an animal, treated to prevent decay, and stuffed to reproduce the same appearance as when it was alive. The Taxidermists' waiting room aims to reenact the last gesture of a dead animal witnessed/collected through the medium of the body, and then re-cast it with the biodegradable skin from fermented tea leaves as sculptures in order to seal the scattered body into the material. Thus, in the closed room of the exhibition hall, the taxidermist waits for the hybrid body to occur between the body gestures taken, the mannequin imitating the body, and the vegetative skin that stretches, shrinks over time and hardens.
The weekly performance process is transmitted through a monitor connected to the concealed room during the exhibition period, and the room can only be peeped through a narrow hole in the door. Last but not least, the taxidermist attempts a confidential conversation with the audience in the segmented exhibition space through a letter to the deer, rewritten from a novel by Ocean Vuong, On Earth we're briefly gorgeous.
