What to make of the video Spite Your Face (2017)? It’s a mix of live-action and animation that riffs on the Pinocchio story, except in this version, our protagonist’s nose is made of pure gold, and—when stroked—is a site of pure sexual pleasure. “Maclean’s work is a joyfully riotous response to contemporary politics and to timeless human traits such as greed, envy, and narcissism,” said Paul Luckraft, the exhibition’s curator. “It lures one into surreally seductive worlds, full of familiar textures, characters, and storytelling tropes. But any familiarity is shaken by the intensity and complexity with which Maclean orchestrates her narratives. She produces acerbic satirical tales for our febrile times.” Also on view: Make Me Up (2018)—think John Waters directing an episode of Black Mirror—and a new virtual reality piece.
