Rattled Sideways, 2023

The Second Act Stand: 229

Rattled Sideways is a direct quote from the first response of the ‘Peep Show’, 2023. McCaig responds to the language directly, absorbing the violence of the phrase into the work as a reminder of the tension between the poetic and the political contradictions inherent in these works, and the unexpected articulation of a viewer that is both humorous and performative in the choice of language - ‘rattled’.
