Rachel McBrinn


The old Leith Theatre


Selected Artist

Rachel McBrinn is a visual artist working predominantly with video and installation. Her practice aims to interrogate modes of digital viewing and listening, and the experience of the real and recorded.

For Hidden Door 2017 she will present a series of sculptural video works using a technique of removing the polarising film from LCD monitors. This allows the work to be viewed only from specific points where a filter is installed, with only the white light of the screen’s backlight visible from all other angles, mirroring the opacities present in technological systems.
