Feed Me

Event overview

Rachel Maclean’s Feed Me shows as part of British Art Show 8. A delirious confection of multi-layered digital images, whipped into even more extravagant form by the artist’s trademark multi-character theatrics, Rachel Maclean’s Feed Me is an audacious, provocative exploration of the commercialisation (and sexualisation) of childhood, and a corresponding infantilism in adult behaviour. This is Maclean’s most ambitious project to date, part fairy tale, part hyper-modern fantasia, it is a parable of the pleasures and the perils of excess. As we feed the monster of contemporary consumerist desire, Maclean’s film is a record of all the little monsters that are created in its wake.

Feed Me was commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella (FVU) and Hayward Touring for British Art Show 8. Supported by Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.

British Art Show 8 shows at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery & Norwich University of the Arts until 4th September 2016. Rachel Maclean's work is on show at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery.
