The ‘Made in Broken Britain’ exhibition explores the merciless self-consciousness of modern life, featuring canvases, drawings and miniature installations in Stevenson’s signature style. With sculptures of aging superheroes that can no longer help us, toy Police cars with their wheels stolen, a smashed up riot van, public signage and celebrity photos with their tact and sheen buffed away, plus a sign saying ‘Please Wait Here Until You Are Useful, Thank You’, he’s only just started shouting at everyone and he’s got plenty more to say.
