“These ‘small world re-enactments’ depict past and future riots, reality blurred, all within a jam jar. The jam jar represents containment, violent disturbances served up in manageable doses like news bulletins; complex situations reduced to mantle piece ornaments and souvenirs.“In real life riot situations, the media focus is always on the sensation, violence on the tv screen; tag lines and one-liners are the currency. The works in A Riot in a Jam Jar mimic this tv news approach. They focus on, and amp up, situations for instant consumption. These tiny acts of violence serve as snap shots of a greater and vastly more complex reality.”
