Allegories of Opposition engages with the subject of politics and sport philosophically. The group of works highlight the fluidity of social structures and notions of leadership and ambition. Each of the four large-scale drawings in mixed media on paper are based on a series of invented dialogues between eight politicians and sportspeople.
