On Friday 7th June 2019, James Alexander McKenzie performed JET BABY at the historical Heart of Midlothian on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile as part of Embassy Gallery’s Annuale Festival 2019. JET BABY was an energetic and subversive live public performance of poetry with a temporary art installation. Alice Campbell performs musically with McKenzie in passages of the performance and Glen Thomson filmed the performance and created this video documenting it.  


The ambitious and experimental artists formally known as Pepsi Collective will open their second exhibition of 2019 at St Margaret’s House on the 5th of July and will showcase seventeen of its member’s works for the duration of the weekend.

Exhibiting painting, sculpture, installation, music, film, performance and poetry, Pepsi Collective delights in diversity. The eclectic mash-up of work gives the group an offbeat vitality. Although their work varies, a core ethos of open-mindedness is shared amongst the collective when it comes to artistic practice and arranging exhibitions. As well as this they understand that working together as a team provides them with a larger platform and bigger impact.

PEPSI 2 opens at 6pm on the 5th of July at St Margaret’s House, 151 London Road. The exhibition continues on the 6thand 7th of July, open 10am-6pm.

PEPSI 2 will introduce work by Alice Campbell, Annika Neilson, Cassia Dodman, Daniel O’Dempsey, Elliot Killick, Ewan Arthur, Glen Thomson, James Alexander McKenzie, Jamie Watt, Jennie Bates, Lewis Bissett, Liam San Roman, Lorna Sinclair, Luke Greer, Nicola Donaldson, Nicole Cumming and Saoirse Anis.
