Audio recording of Friday Event Lecture at The Glasgow School of Art on 17-Nov-2006 || Chad McCail is interested in the relationship between propaganda, educational graphics and art. He is currently working on a series of pictures that dramatise particular conflicts. Employing the style of a tableau vivant, toys and models are foregrounded in his images, their poses reflecting and commenting upon action that takes place behind them; the use of oblique and poetic texts within the imagery interrupting the silence of the classic ‘tableau’. Referencing key influences upon his work (including Wilhelm Reich, A. S. Neill and Stanley Milgram) McCail will discuss his interests in how mass obedience is maintained, how relationships between people can be strengthened, alternative kinds of education and, most significantly, how he addresses these ideas as an artist. ||
