An installation based on a visit to the Surrealist Artist Leonora Carrington, who was living in Mexico City. Her presence was used as a licence to take apart the logical structures and use overt surrealist tactics. A short 16mm film is a simple document of her presence. The other objects in the room with the film were a life size drawing of a whale skeleton made up of tiny dense marks, A cherrywood sculpture based on scenes of figures in a riot, and an antique table with the shadows of hands inlaid in to its surface with mother of pearl.
