Moving On

Cycle 15 Alt-w Production Award - KMG
www.kmgyeah.com

17th February to 13th March 2024.
Royal Scottish Academy, The Mound, Edinburgh EH2 2EL

The artist KMG unleashed her multi-eyed character ‘Ken’ onto Aberdeen's Music Hall screen in 2023. Now at the Visual Arts Scotland centenary exhibition the character is seen skateboarding, surfing and riding a fox no less. An unmistakable combination, filled with playful enthusiasm.

KMG's work explores themes ranging from the precarious to the mundane, with often quite subversive results. A weird and wonderful combination of curiosity mixed with utter cynicism leaves her work with a surreal and sarcastic tone. Her belief in the power of accessible art is unshakeable.

The Great Gonzo in particular stands out for his narration of the story as Dickens himself.

Caine said "I'm going to play this movie like I'm working with the Royal Shakespeare Company" and it shows superbly. The rousing score was composed by Miles Goodman with songs by Paul Williams. Toast the season with a glass of mulled wine and revel in the Dickensian dress code option.
