I am a multidisciplinary artist. This sculpture was inspired by gritty London life, focusing on characters and architectural aesthetics. I have re-created a Morleys and a corner shop in Peckham. Creating a different look on daily life, where rats have joined the over populated world of humans; due to the effects and tolerance of rat poison. Being stuck in the hierarchy, repetitive daily routines, rules and expectations that we have allowed to trap us; rats have succeeded where only a small percentage of us have through a sense of freedom. This piece was a result of an exploration on London vermin.
