This week, I talk with artist Rachel Maclean about her solo show I HEART SCOTLAND at Edinburgh Printmakers, part of Edinburgh Art Festival. Her work slips inside and outside of history and into imagined futures, creating hyper-glowing, artificially saturated visions that are both nauseatingly positive and cheerfully grotesque. She largely works in green-screen composite video and digital print, often installing this alongside props, costumes and related sculpture. We also feature the debut single by brand new Edinburgh band NAKED.
