Castration pliers, aluminium stand and castration rings
Exploring contemporary power structures, 'The Younger The Better (aka The Institution)' is a tongue-in-cheek and simultaneously scathing critique of the educational institution. Using lamb castration pliers and rings as a metaphor for the reduction of students to units/sheep, rendering faculty to sheepdogs, and the institution as production line, this piece questions the power an institution has to shape and control discourse, ideas, philosophy and politics.

In June 2016 the UK voted in a referendum to leave the European Union, with 51.9% voting out and 48.1% voting to stay in the EU. Article 50 is an EU law that triggers the 2 year legal process by which member states may withdraw from the EU. In March 2017 the UK's Prime Minister invoked Article 50, launching "Brexit". Article 50 fragrance is an expression of the strong emotional response triggered by the results of the EU Referendum, based on voting statistics.
Article 50 is complex, emotive and atmospheric - a thunderstorm of a fragrance which refuses to fully resolve itself.
