Dead good! Molly Russell’s ‘Dearly Departed’

Dearly Departed (c) Molly Russell

It’s not unusual to get a bit too attached to the family pet, but few of us would make the poor blighter a lifesize coffin when it shuffles off this mortal coil. But most of us aren’t artist Molly Russell, who has experienced the joys and woes of owning hundreds of animals over the years. In her first exhibition, ‘Dearly Departed’, Russell (daughter of recently departed film director Ken Russell) will be showing 12 wonderful, humorous and macabre coffins designed to accommodate giraffes, crocodiles, meerkats, snakes and other creatures on their final journeys at Arch 402 Gallery (until Oct 4). There will also be animation, photography and animal floral tributes. Carly-Ann Clements
