Feed Me is a parable of the pleasures and perils of indulgence, a waspish skit on a world where greed is good. Extravagance and excess are features of Rachel Maclean’s artistic palette; evident in the multi-layered digital confections with which she decorates her work. Although these computer-generated effects apply a candy-coated surface, Maclean lays it on equally thick with make-up and costume: older tricks of the trade that enable her to appear as multiple characters in a parade of performances.
Feed Me, 2015 by Rachel Maclean is commissioned by FVU and Hayward Touring for British Art Show 8. Supported by Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.
The screening on Sat 29 October will be introduced by artist and director Rachel Maclean.
