We tend to view 'barbaric' practices of the past with horror, but we are living in a grotesque world of our own, in which those who live outside the norm are vilified and emotionally tortured.

I created 'Theatre Of The Grotesque No. 1' using vintage medical imagery as a metaphor for the harsh reality of our society, which appears open-minded, but is wanting us all to conform to the status quo.

Casual discrimination is directed towards those who do not think or behave as part of the mainstream … we are threatening without meaning to be, dangerous and unruly.

Watch these television programs, get married, have children, wait until you die – for some of us, this is not enough.
