On the gallery walls hang six large screenprints, in which Smith has worked over illustrations from an educative handbook for juveniles exposed to the justice system in vast, waxy multicolour scrawls and scratches. They offer, to coin a phrase, a travesty of justice. In Colouring Book 38, a jury bench is engulfed in black strokes and white washes, overseen by an obscured radiant sun, while in Colouring Book 39, the brightly robed ‘Judge Friendly’ addresses a pink bird, although with one eye obscured by a patch of red, the magistrate more closely resembles a ridiculous pirate. ‘This isn’t a costume’, says the judge, reads a text below the image. With a newly apricot face and colourless robes, the Judge reappears in the diptych Colouring Book 36 alongside a blacked-out police officer and two faceless children who loom beside a globe. Like the motto on an imperial crest, a legend runs along the bottom: ‘If we all work together, we can make the world a better place.’ For all its childish simplicity, this series conjures the experience of a system in which the rules are unknown and the odds are stacked like loaded dice.

Teenage Dream consists of a framed found object – a collaged bedroom door discovered on the streets of Athens by the artists in 2019. The collage itself dates back to 1974 and contains a personal handwritten letter which describes the birth of punk ideology, set against a background of a newly emergent western capitalist iconography.

Lloyd Corporation, as part of their ongoing practice, collect a variety of notices, advertisements, messages, stickers and signs from the streets of different countries. Posted anonymously to various kinds of street furniture, these materials bring to light a multitude of complex, informal social interactions and communications that occur, across different urban spaces. Ranging from the hand-made to basic forms of copy and print, these low-fi objects have been taken out of their typically transient circulation by the artists to reflect on the current political and economic issues that people are facing across our cities.

In this work, the adverts and cuttings also allow us to access a much larger historical conversation concerning the relationship between youthful rebellion and anti-authoritarian ideologies. In Greece this is often linked with the Athens Polytechnic uprising of November 1973 – a massive student demonstration that was suppressed by the Greek military and culminated with a tank crashing through the front gates of the university, a photo of which can be seen in lower half of the collage.

These new works continue on Middleton's interest in logistics trucks and the way that they are decorated and liveried by the drivers that inhabit them. The imagery in these works is sourced from the artist’s own photographs of ‘bumper decorations’ (toys and objects that are fixed to the front grill of commercial vehicles by their owners) with a specific focus on those that contain an explicit reference to death, violence or anger.

The act of attaching any kind of toy to the grill of a van could be seen as implicitly violent or masochistic, but they are also an expression of the individuality of the driver onto the generic fleet vehicle. They display a visual bravado; an emotional toughness in the desecration of a childhood object meant for fun, play and love. The artist is interested in the relationship between these ideas and how they are set against those of work and entrapment, embodied in these works by the imprisonment of the toys; They represent a transition from the child’s world of fantasy into the adult’s real world of labour, debt and wages.

These works are drawn by taking measurements from actual vehicles and transcribing them with a 1:1 ratio onto the paper with a ruler and compass and hand-made curved templates. The format of the drawing and reversal of logos and number plates reference the view as seen through rear-view mirror – as does the composition, the viewer finds themselves at eye level with the grill as if tailgating.
