The title itself an allusion to Maclean’s view of the Brexit vote; ‘cut off your nose to spite your face’. Fig. 4. Rachel Maclean, “Spite Your Face.” Scottish Pavilion. Venice. 2017. Fig. 4 shows Spite Your Face in its Venice iteration; replacing the altar of the deconsecrated church Chiesa di Santa Caterina. Screened on a large scale, the film is shot in portrait mode its height rising to four metres high.

As moral stories fairy tale often warns against lying. Pinocchio –the story to which Spite Your Face takes its inspiration– is a moral story that does just that. Rogue wooden marionette Pinocchio, refuses to obey any authority instead following his own whims and desires. His actions are not without consequence, when he lies his nose grows, he is tricked, hung and eaten by a shark. Throughout Spite Your Face we see Pic lie more and more but the moral lessons are unclear; the boundary betwee>GET ANSWER
