The Outlier by Simon Pope

The Rotunda Museum, Vernon Road, Scarborough, North Yorkshire
19th July - 28th September 2014

There is a rock on the corner of Royal Terrace in Scarborough – a glacial erratic – which eludes the town's geological collection. While others sit in collective isolation in the cabinets of the Rotunda Museum and its stores, artist Simon Pope suggests it 'remains maverick – warily, we might imagine – perhaps in expectation of its inevitable capture.'

In The Outlier, Pope and other participants imagine how the erratic and related objects understand their relationships to each other – as a way of understanding their 'social world’.

These four short documentary films by Tariq Emam provide an insight into Simon Pope's artistic practice and the making of this work.
