‘Keywords’ @Iniva

phonto(8)

I went to my favorite place yesterday; Invia. Originally, the book ‘Keywords’ was created by Raymond Williams. Within the book itself he explored the relationship between social, cultural and educational studies. Thus altogether becoming (in a sense) a visual culture. The works are presented from 1976 to present day. It is an extremely visual exhibiton. Though I believe reading the book,or in short the leaflet gives you a completely different insight on the works. I must include, every time I go to Iniva the Curators do an exquiste job. The use of space and time is paramount, Grant Watson most definitely used space symbolically. As you enter, you are immediately greeted by carpet. Yes! Carpet! Which strangely has this nostalgic feel. But later becomes so much more profound, as the primary coloured words literally surround you inticing all senses. One might look at it as a very puzzling,bewildering experience. To be quite honest I did feel on edge with the Sonic Art, mix media photographic work,video installations and Op Art all in one space. Which was a heavy contrast to the video piece on the 2nd floor. I was there for a while figuring out what both Williams and Grant were trying to announce to the public. It became apparent as people came in and left within 5 minutes. The power of words is overbearing and sometimes almost too truthful.

  1. It’s going to be end of mine day, but before finish I am reading this great paragraph to increase my know-how.

  2. Fine way of describing, and good paragraph to take
    information regarding my presentation subject matter, which i am going to present
    in college.

  3. I was recommended this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem. You’re amazing!

    Thanks!

  5. That is really fascinating, You’re an excessively professional blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed and stay up for in quest of more
    of your excellent post. Additionally, I’ve shared your site in my social networks

  6. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You obviously know what youre
    talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    • Thanks for the kind words and the compliment but please do expand on the videos-? I don’t really post just videos. Do you like more social/ exhibition reviews? I’m here to learn too and I’m eager to find out what my readers interests are…

  7. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you need to write more
    on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but
    generally people do not discuss such topics. To the next!
    All the best!!

    • Thank you for the kind words. I feel like I should do an extended piece-It seems a lot of readers are interested in this post.
