Please, Sir ...
Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden
The video installation Please, Sir... (2014) is a darkly comic adaptation of Mark Twain’s The Prince and The Pauper, exploring themes of greed, class and dependence within a cultural rhetoric of austerity and aspiration. She mimes to found audio plundered from a myriad of sources, including Britain’s Got Talent, Jeremy Kyle and The Apprentice. As in many other of her works, Rachel Maclean is the only actor in front of the green screen.
