Bitch, Jerwood Drawing Prize 2013

link to poem: shes_a_bitch

‘Bitch (2013) by Catherine Linton is another exceptional work. A recorded voice whispers an elliptical poem about dogs (“… at your feet I lay…”), while a faint pencil animation plays on a screen of yellow notepaper on the back wall of a tiny wooden cage. You have to look through the bars to see: a young woman wearing a muzzle, running. The feminist allusions are powerful and delicate at once.’ 

[Zoe Pilger, The Independent, 12 September 2013]

‘The quality of the voice is that of a 2B pencil.’

[Malgorzata Kitowski, PoetryFilm, 18 July 2014]
