“There is an area, at which art and life intersect, which becomes physically present in Scottish artist Cathy Wilkes’ carefully constructed installation Mister So And So,… It is a panoramic installation, full of delicate hints and fragile signs of courtship, dreams and projection, assumptions and knowledge… With a logic of her own, scepticism, and minimal means, her sculptures consist of found, thrown-away and neglected objects, furniture, from which she produces her own poetic and ambiguous narratives… Cryptic, but with their improvised ‘povera’ – charm oddly timeless, the single pieces assume the characters in a complex narrative of individuals and relationships.” -Angela Rosenberg, Flash Art, May/June 2001
