Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Shitter, 2015
In Daniel Mudie Cunningham’s Shitter, a prison toilet becomes the site for an obscene self-revelation of the once hidden shame that is too easily overshared in a confessional culture. In a series of tweets sent from a cell, the artist’s innermost secrets crawl across the screen like a walk of shame after a drunken one-night stand. The roll call of experience alluding to teenage kleptomania, childhood sexual abuse, drug use and porn addiction reminds us of the fluidity of criminality as a concept and how the relationship between perpetrator and victim can be a complex and shifting one.
