Burgerheaven explores aspects of consumer culture and desire, focussing on the cult of celebrity and fast food. At YYZ, Beagles and Ramsay will construct an installation that resembles a fully operational fast food restaurant with a video component. The opening night will feature a performance by Beagles and Ramsay. Beagles and Ramsay will present an artist talk discussing their practice with specific reference to contemporary Scottish and British artists.
John Beagles and Graham Ramsay live and work in Glasgow and have exhibited together as Beagles & Ramsay since 1996. Beagles and Ramsay have been chosen to represent Scotland as part of the new Scottish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, 2003.
