Artist Rachel Maclean talks about her Scotland + Venice exhibition at the Biennale Arte 2017 in Venice.

Spite Your Face is a dark Venetian fairytale presented as a large-scale portrait projection at the altar of the deconsecrated church, Chiesa di Santa Caterina, Cannaregio, Venice.

The exhibition is open from 13 May - 26 November 2017.

Referencing the Italian folk-tale the film 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.
