This exhibition is free and unticketed but we will be operating at reduced capacity and require all visitors to adhere to our Covid safety measures, including wearing a mask at all times, and 'checking in' on arrival.

Machines of Love, the ambitious new film at the centre of the installation, is a hallucinogenic horror which lures us beneath a decaying Viking film set into a casino of buried aircrafts, continuing van Zyl’s process of guerrilla filmmaking in abandoned Hollywood film sets.

A sextet of ghouls arrive here on the promise of a Good Fantasy; setting in motion an erotic game of destruction and renewal. Caught in the Machines’ lottery of role-play, they breed cakes of their own likeness into the fuselage: a rush of passion that ends, inevitably, in a grisly conclusion.

Attentive to the mutability and rotation of roles, the film free-falls through the terror, excitement, panic, and anticipation held within self-creation in a rumination on the enduring power and politics of fantasy.


Machines of Love (2020/1) is a 40 minute film, and screens at the following times:

10.30am / 11.20am / 12.10pm / 1.00pm / 1.50pm / 2.40pm / 3.30pm / 4.20pm / 5.00pm

Please note that this video installation includes sexual content, scenes of a violent nature and strobe lighting effects. Please speak to a member of staff if you have any questions.

Commissioned by Glasgow International and supported by the Henry Moore Foundation, the Royal Academy Schools, the Artists' Collecting Society, the Horse Hospital, David Palmer and Amanda Wilkinson, with on location filming in Iceland facilitated by the Stannus Grey Robinson travel prize.
