You Are the Prime Minister (neon sign) . 2014

+ waterside contemporary

'You are the Prime Minister', a prominent neon work in the window of the gallery becomes an empowering invitation to take up the title role in a fantasy fiction. It is soon revealed to be misleading: the statement belongs to a larger piece from a scholarship exam for thirteen years-old boys entering Eton College, an elite school that trained 19 of the Britain’s Prime Ministers and 12 members of the current Government:“(...) You are the Prime Minister. Write a script for a speech to be broadcast to the nation in which you explain why employing the Army against violent protesters was the only option available to you and one which was both necessary and moral.”
