“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. As the show self-professedly attempts to expose the ‘coping mechanisms’ we use to deal with ‘unstable existence’, the stairs transform to a descending escalator in the mind, and the snake undulates: forever toiling, but ultimately stationary.”
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.
