In the early 1970s in the heart of Moscow, while the Soviet Union was at its strongest, scientists began developing The Newcomer believing that it would change the face of the battlefield. Since then it has been dormant. That changed on 3 March 2018, when The Newcomer arrived in a provincial sleeping English city. Unbeknown to one of the residents he was to be the target of The Newcomer (Novichok) and its deadly ways. Using found imagery, together with my own images, this work plays on the theatricality of a modern day attempted assassination. Combining what is false, with cinematic truth, it creates something which concerns reality however implausible.
