Rachel Maclean and Doireann O’Malley at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane

September 6, 2018 – 2:57 pm |

The Hugh Lane’s current exhibition Just be yourself! by Scottish artist Rachel Maclean will end on Sunday 16 September.

This exhibition presents the first solo exhibition in Ireland of Scottish artist Rachel Maclean, who creates fantastic visual narratives using green-screen technology. 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.

This exhibition includes Spite Your Face 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 The Adventures of Pinocchio and offers a powerful critique of contemporary society and its underlying fears and desire. Spite Your Face 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.

Furthermore the exhibition of Irish-Berlin based Doireann O’Malley: Prototypes is extended until the 30th of September, you can find more details here http://www.hughlane.ie/current/2029-doireann-omalley-prototypes

Prototypes is a multi-screen film installation by Berlin-based Irish artist Doireann O’Malley.
Exhibition extended to 30 September.

Doireann O’Malley’s film Prototypes brings together transgender studies, science fiction, bio politics, psychoanalysis, AI, and experimental music. She skilfully ties these to phantoms of modernist utopias, epitomized by the post-war architecture of Berlin, which serves as a dreamlike scenography for the main, protagonists’ ghostly actions.
