'Emotional Need'
An exhibition by Adam Lewis Jacob with works by Donald Rooum

Preview: 26.05.17, 6–8pm
Exhibition: 27.05.17 – 02.07.17

'Emotional Need' explores the life and work of anarchist cartoonist Donald Rooum, who has been involved in political organising, publishing and comic illustration since the late 1940s. Donald’s commitment to anarchist politics and humorous drawings are the catalyst for a new film, rhythmically combining a series of informal interviews with Donald with performed extracts of his writing, animated cartoons and staged performances.

The film is exhibited alongside a new soft-sculpture by Adam and a selection of Donald’s original drawings and ephemera related to his Wildcat Comics series. This long-running political satire, features a small cast of characters centred around the short-tempered anarchist Wildcat and an intellectual bird called Free-range Egg Head, who take on familiar targets such as bosses, government officials and the monarchy.

— Satellites Programme is Collective’s development programme for emergent artists and producers based in Scotland. 2017 participants are: Grace Johnston, Alex Impey, Adam Lewis Jacob, Ross Little and Timothea Armour.
