Rachel Maclean’s Perth High Street Toy Shop Takeover

To launch its new off-site commissioning platform to bring work by contemporary artists into communities across Scotland through temporary takeovers of public spaces, Jupiter Artland has installed a work in a shop on Perth’s historic High Street, by Scottish artist Rachel Maclean. Known for her meticulously-crafted fantasy worlds, Maclean’s work is a timely response to the crisis facing many high streets across the country. A haunting and satirical exploration of consumerism, politics and identity, it takes the form of a seemingly-abandoned toy shop and builds on her cartoon princess Mimi (see artmag.co.uk’s review of Rachel Maclean’s Jupiter Artland installation, May 2021).
