Designed to occupy a full corner of gallery space, the principal feature of The Prompter is a raised platform resembling a stage. At the stage’s edge, a miniature prompter’s box is occupied by the sculpted figure of a dwarf. Although the dwarf’s upper body and head are hidden within the box we assume the figure looks out onto the stage, which is empty except for an abandoned drum. Positioned towards the back of the stage, the drum is within the prompter’s fictive gaze. Linoleum flooring of a bold geometric design covers the stage, accentuating the optical effect of spatial recession.
