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 details see the ' Current Tour Dates and Locations' page.
