Yours truly follows the trail of taxidermic pieces collected during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by The Manchester Museum. Letters between its directors, explorers, and lords unveil the stories of specimens. From a crocodile who digested the legs of natives on the River Ganges, to the famous Manchester moth who was the obsession of a wealthy banker, they act now as uncomfortable reminders of past scientific and colonial procedures that sought to capture, order, and control animated life.
