'A.V.M, 1954, Screenshot 2013-12-10' is a series of four drawings made for the solo exhibition 'Pots before words' (2014). The screenshots are selected from a 1950s television panel show in which a series of prehistoric objects are offered for silent analysis by a female assistant. The images highlight the performative gestures for display and interpretation created by the handler. The scientific lens of the clinical close-up is indicated by detailed drawing.
'A.V.M, 1954, Screenshot 2013-12-10' was selected for the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2014.
