THE lauded show that represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale is to be re-staged in Edinburgh.

The Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh is to stage Spite Your Face, the video work by artist Rachel Maclean.

The gallery space has been prepared for the show with a navy carpet, gold fabric and cushions.

The film will be displayed on a monolithic portrait-format screen, suspended at one end of the Georgian Gallery.

The free show runs 24 February to 5 May 2018.

Commissioned by the Scotland + Venice partnership, Spite Your Face was curated by Alchemy Film and Arts in partnership with Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh.

In Venice, the work was shown in the Chiesa di Santa Caterina from May to November last year.

Since 2003, Scotland has selected artists to represent its contemporary art scene at the Biennale through the Scotland + Venice partnership, run by Creative Scotland, the National Galleries of Scotland and the British Council Scotland.

Tessa Giblin, director of the University of Edinburgh’s Talbot Rice Gallery, said: “Welcoming Rachel Maclean’s prescient artwork back to Edinburgh after its success in Venice is exciting in so many ways – ‘Spite Your Face’ seems to be even more relevant now in these post-Weinstein days than it did as she created the work in the dawning post-truth era."

A WORK of art that shows what is happening miles beneath the Earth’s surface is being exhibited at Paisley Museum.

Beneath and Beyond, by Scottish artist Stephen Hurrel, uses real-time audio and visual displays of information being gathered by earthquake monitoring stations around the world.

The sounds people hear at the show come from an average of 18 miles below the surface in the Earth’s crust.

The free exhibition runs until April 15.

Hurrel said: “I’ve always had an interest in the relationship between nature and technology since I would watch submarines sail up and down the Clyde with a backdrop of stunning natural scenery from the home where I grew up, in Dunoon.

"The Beneath and Beyond exhibition is a perfect example of that.

"What people will see and hear is actually happening there and then deep down under the earth’s surface."

The artist will also give a free talk on his artwork on March 10, at 2pm, in the Paisley Museum.

DUNDEE Rep is to stage its Children's Festival runs from April 2-14.
