Sam Petersen, Installation shot, My Pee Is Political, 2020Sam Petersen


I’m interested in what can be done with one’s identity and the space around it.

Of course this is political - often to do with my disability and my sexuality. My work has been focused on access, and the lack of it — to places, people’s minds and opportunities.

I find plasticine is a great subverter of space and potentially of people’s minds. And the continued flexibility of it is something I am really enjoying — covering or filling up gaps and playing with crevices.

But I’m finding that my work is drawing more and more to spoken word as a direct format.
