PRESS Sam Porritt in Corridor 8

“Out of the eleven works on show, ‘the balancing act’ is a motif most literally figured in Sam Porritt’s ‘Muscle Memory’ (2017), in which a clay snake scales a set of stairs.

Sam Porritt’s work, ‘Muscle Memory’ features in group show ‘Tipping the Scales’ at Paradise Works, Salford. Read the review for Corridor8 by Jordan Harrison-Twist here.
