Alastair MacLennan is a pioneer of the experimental genre of action art. In his work, ordinary and familiar situations are filtered through an artistic context that provides him with a site for action.

The elements MacLennan employs in his installation are heavily charged with emotion and his actions draw on allegory, paradox, metaphor and contradiction. The installation is enacted during the opening days of the exhibition with a durational performance in which the artist, in a previously constructed setting, realizes only the slightest of actions that reveal his presence.
