A contemporary exploration of national identity


To coincide with the exhibition ‘Landseer’s The Monarch of the Glen’, this display of Scottish artist Rachel Maclean’s 2012 film ‘The Lion and The Unicorn’ shines an irreverent light on Scottish-English relationships.

One of the most sharply satirical artists in Britain today, Maclean’s (1987–) caustic and darkly comical films look at how we shape collective and individual identities. Her distinctive style combines gaudy masks, grotesque prostheses, and elaborate scenography.

A counterpoint to Landseer’s iconic image, ‘Rachel Maclean: In Dialogue with the National Gallery’ reflects Maclean’s engagement with issues of national identity.
