Exhibition: Rachel Maclean, Spite your Face

24 February 2018 until 5 May 2018
Talbot Rice Gallery

Commissioned for the Venice Biennale in 2017, Rachel Maclean’s Spite Your Face returns to Scotland at Talbot Rice Gallery for its UK premiere.

Shown as a perpetual 37-minute loop with no definitive beginning or end, ‘Spite Your Face’ raises issues including the abuse of patriarchal power, capitalist deception, exploitation and the destructive trappings of wealth and fame, all in Maclean’s typically direct and acerbic style.

The work is reframed for the Georgian Gallery of Talbot Rice, which reflects the opulent upper world depicted in the work. Viewers are invited to sit, lie and reflect in the light of the monolithic portrait-format screen.
