Also unveiled at the exhibition will be two of Mach’s distinctive match-head sculptures depicting Jesus and the Devil. Five times the size of a human head and built from thousands of coloured match-heads, the sculptures will be set alight in performances by the artist in Edinburgh. Following a stabilisation process, the charred remains will be displayed in the exhibition.
