Andrew Kötting

Strange odysseys, straw bears and swan-shaped pedalos suffuse these singular works from Britain’s cinema’s most celebrated surrealist.

Andrew Kötting has long established himself as one of British cinema’s most playful and idiosyncratic artists. His cinema is one of restless irreverence, usually conjured from journeys through Britain’s highways, byways, histories and literature, often melding fact and fiction along the way. Delve into this selection of his best works and be prepared for a wild ride.
