Our official Edinburgh Art Festival 2013 tote bag features Ross Sinclair's Real Life Capital-ism artwork, part of the series Real Life and How to Live it in Auld Reekie which the artist created for the festival. Within this work Sinclair uses the spaces of advertising and consumer culture to bring his own special brand of parley to the streets.
Capital-ism, the piece chosen for the tote bag with instructions to 'Abandon History'; 'Tear up the Tartan' and 'Shun the Shortbread', reveals that Sinclair does not simply intend to create conversation about those things which we generally prefer to brush over; he explores how identity itself is a carefully crafted construct, born as much out of what we choose to exclude as those things we happily celebrate.
