She parodies fairy tales, children’s television programmes, advertising, internet videos, and pop culture to examine identities, power dynamics and consumer desire. All of the characters are played by the artist, who transforms herself through extravagant costumes and make-up.</p> <p>This exhibition includes <em>Spite Your Face</em> which Maclean exhibited at the 57th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia in 2017, representing Scotland+Venice 2017, curated by Alchemy Film and Arts in partnership with Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh. The film refers to the Italian folk-tale <em>The Adventures of Pinocchio</em> and offers a powerful critique of contemporary society and its underlying fears and desire. <em>Spite Your Face</em> is a tale across two worlds - with a bright, glittering and ordered upper world, and a warped, dirty, impoverished lower world - where the lure of wealth, power and adoration entices a destitute young boy into the shimmering riches of the kingdom above.</p> <p>Maclean says of <em>Spite Your Face</em>: “With this film I set out to respond to significant changes in the political climate in the UK and abroad over the last 12 months - in particular the divisive campaigns in the lead up to the Brexit vote and the US Presidential election. These events have been central in heralding a new post-truth era, where politicians feel free to say what they want to help them gain popular support, with little regard for factual accuracy.”</p> <p>Based in Glasgow, Rachel Maclean was educated at Edinburgh College of Art. Maclean graduated in 2009 and her work came to public attention in New Contemporaries later that year. She has since risen to significant acclaim, with major solo shows at HOME, Manchester and Tate Britain, 2016-17. Her work <em>A Whole New World</em> won the prestigious Margaret Tait Award in 2013, she has twice been shortlisted for the Jarman Award, and achieved widespread critical praise for <em>Feed Me </em>(2016) in British Art Show 8.</p> <p>For more information on the artist see www.rachelmaclean.com</p> <p>The Hugh Lane is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Ireland of Scottish artist Rachel Maclean, who creates fantastic visual narratives using green-screen technology.

These include John Hume and David Trimble, who were jointly awarded The Nobel Peace Prize in 1998 "for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland", and whose portraits will be exhibited for the first time at The Hugh Lane.</p> <p>Alongside these portraits will be works acknowledging the role of Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Betty Williams and Ciaran McKeown who founded the Peace People, a cross-community grassroots movement of citizens dedicated to ending the sectarian strife in Northern Ireland. Maguire and Williams shared the 1976 Nobel Peace Prize.</p> <p>Other works in <em>Keeper </em>expand this theme of portraiture and its role in social and political life and further reflect on the formal and informal processes through which memory and history are made. These include <em>Billy's Museum</em> (2004), a filmed record of a collection of items relating to various individuals, incidents and occurrences made by Prison Officer Billy Hull in HM Prison Maze. A new artwork entitled <em>The People's Portraits 1899-1918</em> will also be shown.
