After After After The Monarch of the Glen, Real Life is Dead

6 October – 18 November

We are delighted to be working with contemporary artist Ross Sinclair to commission a response to the iconic Landseer painting The Monarch of the Glen. Ross Sinclair is particularly interested in the nature of identity – what is it and how is it formed. His own body became a tool in his art 1994 when he had the words ‘REAL LIFE’ tattooed across his shoulders. Since then, his ‘Real Life’ projects have taken many forms and in 2017 the tattoo was extended to read ‘REAL LIFE IS DEAD’. He has made works using a multitude of materials and methods including posters, billboards, slogan t-shirts, neon, videos, performances and paintings.
