Indications of Guilt, pt.1 - South Kiosk London

Alumna Maud Craigie is showing Indications of Guilt, pt.1 at South Kiosk London, Unit DG.1

Indications of Guilt, pt.1 by Maud Craigie examines the structures of American police interrogation and their relationship to fictional screen representations of law enforcement.

In 2017, Craigie travelled to Texas to train in America’s widely used form of psychological interrogation. The techniques used have faced scrutiny in recent years due to high false confession rates. This training provided the raw material for a new body of work, centred around a single channel film. The work combines staged and documentary methods to explore how psychological interrogation can function as a process for creating fiction, whilst apparently seeking to establish truth.

Research for this project was funded by the Boise travel scholarship from the Slade during Maud's postgraduate studies.
