14th February to 9th May 2014
The Travelling Gallery will be transformed into an intimate national gallery, come shop-bought Victorian castle this spring, as Rachel Maclean installs her wonderful exhibition 'I HEART SCOTLAND' into the gallery.
Presenting a body of film and print work, the exhibition examines the nation's romantic histories through the lens of contemporary political debate, creating a complex and surreal vision of modern Scotland.
Responding to the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence in 2014, the show explores a sense of both power and absurdity within representations of Scottish and British national pride. At once grotesquely positive and violently kitsch. 'I HEART SCOTLAND' employs dark humour to present a playful and multi-layered reading of contemporary Scottish identity.
All the work in 'I HEART SCOTLAND' has been commissioned, published and produced by Edinburgh Printmakers.
The Travelling Gallery will tour throughout Scotland with ' I HEART SCOTLAND', for more information see the' Current Tour Dates and Locations' page.
