Whitworth Art Gallery


I intentionally went to Whitworth Gallery in Manchester to view Idris Khan’s work (last image in the photo collage below), specifically his wall drawings as research for my studio work and dissertation based on the relationship text and image can have in artworks, where they are so carefully integrated that the audience is unsure whether the piece is text based or a visual image.

Whilst at The Whitworth, I visited the other rooms and found some really interesting pieces, my highlights can be seen below:


One piece I found really interesting was the ‘War/Peace’ (3rd image in the photo collage) cross stitch, Its really intriguing how the definition of peace is backwards, in a less eye catching colour and under lines the striking definition of war, it makes a really dynamic piece with a provocative message.
