Scotland + Venice

Rachel Maclean : Spite Your Face

13 May – 26 November 2017

 

Chiesa di Santa Caterina, Cannaregio, 4090/4091
(Fondamenta di Santa Caterina)
Venice

 

Edinburgh College of Art graduate, Rachel Maclean will present a new film commission in Chiesa Santa Caterina, Cannaregio, Venice – a new venue for the eighth presentation of Scotland + Venice. The exhibition is commissioned and curated by Alchemy Film & Arts, in partnership with Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh.

Rachel Maclean, one of the most significant contemporary artists working in Scotland today, has grown to acclaim through recent solo exhibitions at HOME, Manchester and Tate Britain, London. Maclean is known for her multimedia works, addressing issues of identity, social values and politics through constructed fantasy narratives. Under the guise of a hyper-saturated candy-coloured aesthetic, Rachel creates characters – all played by herself – inspired by society’s culture of narcissism, the history of fairy-tales and modern mythologies.

A mix of high art and popular culture, advanced technology and traditional theatre, humour and serious enquiry, her work is exacting and engaging. Possessing a bold and unique vision, Maclean has created an extraordinary cast of characters in her films.

The new Scotland + Venice commission is an opportunity for Alchemy Film & Arts to celebrate the dynamic creativity emerging within artists’ film and moving image practice in Scotland today. The new work will be produced by the Glasgow-based production company, Barry Crerar, recently set up by producers Rosie Crerar and Ciara Barry. As the project’s creative and academic partner, Talbot Rice Gallery will host Rachel Maclean’s work from the Venice Biennale in early 2018.
