These puppet heads came to life in 2015 way before it was ever deemed possible that they could be taken seriously, let alone both become Prime Minister. Then and now they were symbols of ridicule rather than power. The puppets first appeared in a performance installation called ‘If you haven’t been announced, don’t come in’. The piece is a reinterpretation of a play by Vladimir Mayakovsky from 1929 that openly ridiculed the Communist Party, the updated version openly criticised the UK’s elitist Conservative regime. The work was developed for Performing the Artwork 2, Article, Birmingham (2015). Prices are subject to politics, based on approval ratings, and may go up or down.
