Rotters is a situation for four sculptures over 22 minutes, running continuously.

‘A kangaroo court in a store room, Rotters (2019) holds four sculptures in a looped dialogue. Two interrogators—Sparky the school locker, and Swall the watchtower—push the reticent Rotter the perspex box, for ‘FACTS’. Haunted by the looming presence of So-N-So and the pressure of uncomfortable memories, Rotters scene-of-the-crime is a collision between different forms of inquest.’
With Kirsty Clark and Samson Dittrich.
