Two sculptures entitled ‘Bite It’ and ‘Pink Eye’ (for obvious reasons) by Canadian designer Clem Chen.

The carved out seats – augmented with plastic cast taxidermy moulds and epoxy putty – were made for the ‘Saddle Up!’ show at Vancouver’s Hot Wet City Art Gallery where donated bike seats were modified and reinterpreted by various artists.

Of the 2013 project, entitled Becoming Otherwise, she sez:

“I am interested in the scientific, intellectual and aesthetic reasons behind the re-creation of the animal. I am exploring how each one could exist in a domestic setting by adapting to their surroundings. Through this, my investigations of the animals have developed by morphing animals and other various objects into newly formed creations”.
