His images show rats – which have featured in many of his previous artworks – knocking the bathroom mirror to one side, hanging on the light pull, swinging on a towel ring and stepping on a tube of toothpaste.

One rat is seen skipping on a roll of toilet paper, which has rolled down and across the floor.

Another appears to be urinating against the toilet seat, while one is reflected in the mirror apparently tallying up the days in lockdown in red lipstick.
