Anja Kirschner's drawings present a series of plans for a future film set, dealing with the legendary 18th century criminal Jack Sheppard and his inferred relationship with Daniel Defoe, thought to have been the ghost writer of his 'autobiography'. The designs combine elements from constructivist theatre design and early 18th century prints, depicting modular components of the set to be constructed during filming, indicating the systemic relationship between workshop and prison cell, bourgeois home and the gallows.
