Come with us as we explore the weird art filled and live taxidermy producing home of Caitlin McCormack. She is a Philadelphia-based artist who works primarily with crocheted cotton thread, which is dredged in a mixture of glues, dyes, and paints and fashioned into sculptural forms. The works are stiffened and positioned to resemble skeletal animal and humanoid specimens, as well as structures in various states of decay, mingling with rhizospheric debris and half-forgotten nostalgic murmurs!
McCormack’s row home in South Philadelphia’s East Passyunk neighborhood houses many collections of treasured objects, books, plants, and works of art created by friends and peers. She lives with two cats and her partner, collage artist Alex Eckman-Lawn, and promises that the house doesn’t smell too bad.
