Description:
Born in the nineteenth century and kept in the toe of a boot hung above a fire, Bobby Awl grew to become a feature of the Fleshmarket Steps. Famous in his time but wiped out of history by Messrs Burke and Hare, Bobby's life had passed into the void until his death mask was discovered by international artist and author of the Vorrh trilogy, B. Catling. Resurrected here using a blend of sculpture and performance, Bobby is back – a totem for all the crushed boys of Edinburgh who were transformed by poverty into violent survivors.
