Engaging, empowering, energising culture in Exeter

Screening: Rachel Maclean's Feed Me and After Show Bar 18 February 2017

Rachel Maclean's Feed Me

3.30pm £4 booking essential
Studio 74, Exeter Phoenix

Spacex presents artist Rachel Maclean’s film, commissioned by FVU and Hayward Touring for British Art Show 8. Supported by Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.

Modern life feeds us the line that happiness comes when we follow our desires. If you have a dream, then chase it. But what if what made us happy only ever created an ever-bigger hole to fill? Inspired by fairytales, horror films and TV talent shows Feed Me offers a sharp critique of contemporary culture.

‘Feed Me, with its hideous cast of bestial men and half-human creatures got up in kids’ clothes and smiley badges, is an unforgettable satire on the commercialisation of childhood, with sinister sexual undertones – coruscatingly creepy and astute.’- THE GUARDIAN

‘Exhilarating, funny, and frequently frightening’ - ARTSY

After Show Bar

5 – 6.30pm,
Free but limited spaces, booking essential

In response to Rachel Maclean’s Feed Me, Spacex has invited artist Felicity Shillingford to host a post screening event where you will be able to feed your own appetite (or a friends) for cocktails and fancy dress! Bring your cameras, cash and selfies-sticks to record this binge as you jump between a Sakura flower forest to floating on candy clouds above the streets of Paris with a range of cocktails.

Felicity Shillingford is a visual artist based in Exeter and a member of Preston Street Union. She often repurposes objects and narratives to produce performance, film and installations. Felicity uses humour and playful experiences to explore both the everyday and the taboo.
