By transforming the natural into extraordinary, Les Deux Garçons bring new life, but also new meaning, to the animals and objects they choose to resurrect. Fascinated by the fleeting and random aspects of our existence, by the subjectivity behind the notions of good and evil, they confront the beholder with their odd, yet beautiful, endearing, yet shocking sculptures. Taxidermy is used as a potent medium to disturb, but mostly to discuss a variety of subjects: the contours of the line between good and bad, between life and death, between fantasy and reality...
