Rachel Maclean




The 2014 Zabludowicz Collection Invites programme is launched with an exhibition of videos by Glasgow-based artist Rachel Maclean (b.1987, Edinburgh).

Creating glowing, hyper-saturated worlds using green-screen technology, Maclean weaves together appropriated audio and a multitude of narrative references to form darkly comic odysseys. The only actor in her work, Maclean enters into a variety of guises that embody unstable identities, shifting between cartoonish archetypes and hollow inhuman clones.

The centre-piece of the presentation is Over the Rainbow, 2013, an absurdist reworking of Faustian and horror movie genres inspired by the Technicolor utopias of children’s television and the tribulations of talent shows. A second video, The Lion and The Unicorn, 2012, explores the myriad and often contradictory constructions of cultural identity, specifically what it means to be Scottish and part of the Union with England.
