RAQS – Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester

'Twilight Language' by Raqs Media Collective

Twilight Language is a new exhibition at The Whitworth Manchester by Raqs Media Collective from New Delhi, India. A multi-faceted show across multiple gallery spaces, including 17 video installations.

We spent most of September 2017 working at The Whitworth, with the artists, curatorial team and the gallery technicians. It’s been a fantastic project to work, and we are proud to have provided the A/V, both equipment and expertise, for what is a world class exhibition.

“We and Raqs think that the AV work has come out exceptionally well and that, very importantly, it was a pleasure having you around. You work with knowledge and experience and also with the ability to listen to the artist and get it right for them.”

Curator Mary Griffiths from The Whitworth.

Audio-visual installation by: Kathryn Gray, James Islip, Joe Osborne, Ben Gwilliam, Chris Woodward & Mark Rhodes. In terms of the gear, we mainly used WUXGA RZ range laser Panasonic projectors, with additional projectors from the DZ range. The playback is powered by Brightsign. In addition there are two audio installations, one a sound shower, plus several screen-based works.

Sincere thanks to Mary Griffiths, Leanne Green, Raqs and all of the staff at The Whitworth. ‘Twilight Language’ is open until March 2018, see The Whitworth website for details.
