Rachel Maclean 'Feed Me' as part of the 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. Produced by Film and Video Umbrella, 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.
