A brand new series of revolutionary pamphlets by Black & BLUE.

Political writing, poetry, and written in prose, these pamphlets aim to blur the boundary and cross the divide between literary & political genres. They cover eleven heart-felt themes, and all contain the phrase 'wind through the keyhole'.

ILLUMINATIONS


Black & BLUE G A L L E R Y
ILLUMINATIONS

ILLUMINATIONS is a Black & BLUE exhibition exploring
the relationship between text and visual art in June 2014,
in The Crypt Gallery, St Pancras Church, London.

 

 

 

It wants to ask questions about how visual art and text come together; how they haunt each other; how they pull away from each other. How do painters, sculptors, performers envision language? What happens when text threatens to overthrow the visual? What happens when images tyrannise over words? What synaesthetic effects are waiting to emerge from the strange, dissimulating marriage of image and text?

As an organisation dedicated to blurring the lines between literary categories, Black & BLUE aims to use the exhibition as an opportunity for artists to present their own interpretations of what it means for word to bleed into image, for the one to reinforce the other, for the two to become inseparable, and for the limit between the two to be presented as unstable.

Black & BLUE has placed William Blake’s ‘composite art’ as the inspiration for this exhibition. Blake was both a poet and visual artist who was able to ‘play text and design off against one another’ with a complementary effect. Blake created a body of work which interrogated the limit between text and art and explored it as a unique adventure in art. His poetry does not simply exist as text to be read, it is always language to be seen. As such, this London exhibition will be in homage to the generous and groundbreaking spirit of William Blake and will particularly encourage a response to what he called ‘my composite art’.
