An absent Administrator was invoked by projection, print and narrative. A Youth Administrator’s hands were projected in miniature and the words ‘Thank You’ were reversed and debossed in holographic foil on an inkjet print. As the projection looped, the accompanying voice-over observed the character of the Administrator emerge through a small act of theft.

This exhibition was accompanied by a book published by nGbK.

The first exhibition of this work was also accompanied by a book published by Book Works and Flat Time House. A limited edition of the print is available from Book Works.

Youth Administrator additionally exists as a film.

Originally exhibited in Dr Sinclair’s Drawer with Katrina Palmer, Samuel Hasler and Francesco Pedraglio at Flat Time House (London), 9 October–23 November 2014. Commissioned by Book Works (London) and Flat Time House.
