Wot u :-) about?: BSL Led Gallery Tour at HOME

Polly Checkland Harding
We Want Data by Rachel Maclean. Commissioned by Artpace and HOME.

Wot u :-) about?: BSL Led Gallery Tour at HOME Manchester, Manchester 3 December 2016 Entrance is free

Emoticons turned nasty, data vomit and more modern madness – Rachel Maclean’s fabulous, fluorescent exhibition at HOME is a chaotic, dystopian look at our obsession with social media and technology. Maclean, set to represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale 2017, is well known for her video work, but has also created a set of brand new sculptures for this exhibition. Explore the gallery, in which sweetly grotesque characters have climbed out from the screen and into physical form, on a tour led solely in British Sign Language by Art and Design Historian Jennifer Little. Discover the multitude of references at work in Maclean’s art, and watch the grand finale of the exhibition, the unnerving video It’s What’s Inside That Counts.

Meet at the Box Office on the day. Book by emailing access@homemcr.org
