Details

Adam Roberts' Stiletto, enacts a few moments in the life of a young orphaned boy who restlessly wiles away the time in the suburban idyll of his aunt's unloving home. Haunted by self-doubt and loathing for all that surrounds him, he creates through a series of ritualistic offerings, an animal deity, which he keeps caged in a shed at the bottom of the garden and whose existence ultimately leads to a horrific finale.

Adam Roberts recently screened work at Performatica. Mexico; the Zodiak Festival, Helsinki; the Point, Eastleigh; the Filmhuis, Den Haag and at Todds Gallery, Hastings. He was born in Colombia and lives and works in London.
