‘Feed Me’ : Special Screening Event
Join us for a special one-off screening in Cupar’s (in)famous Jordan’s Nightclub of Rachel Maclean’s ‘Feed Me’ on Wednesday, June 22 from 7pm
‘Feed Me’ centres on the idea fed to us by modern life that happiness comes when we follow our desires. Rachel’s work is a wicked, waspish skit on a world where greed is good and self-interest reigns. Using colourful computer-generated effects as well as make-up, costume and prosthetics, she appears as multiple characters, including the pre-teen social media fanatic and the silver-fox media entrepreneur. Her work lambasts the commercialisation of childhood, and in turn the infantilisation of adulthood.
Rachel was recently selected to represent Scotland at Venice Biennale 2017. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009 and works mainly with green-screen digital video.
Commissioned by FVU and Hayward Touring for British Art Show 8. Supported by Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.
The festival is also showing a second film by Rachel Maclean, ‘Over the Rainbow’, which can be viewed daily in County Buildings.
