Indications of Guilt pt.1, Maud Craigie (2021)

Indications of Guilt, pt.1 examines the structures of American police interrogation and their relationship to fictional screen representations of law enforcement.

In 2017, Maud Craigie travelled to Texas to train in America’s widely used form of psychological interrogation. The techniques used have faced scrutiny in recent years due to high false confession rates. This training provided the raw material for a new body of work, comprising a single channel film, shown alongside a sound work and a selection of objects from Craigie’s research.

The work combines staged and documentary methods to explore how psychological interrogation can function as a process for creating fiction, whilst ostensibly seeking to establish truth.

Craigie’s research was supported by the Boise Travel Scholarship, Slade School of Fine Art, 2016.
