Raqs Media Collective: Twilight Language

Twilight Language
The Whitworth, Manchester
30 September 2017 – 25 February 2018

The Necessity of Infinity: Saturday 30 September, 3.45pm-4.45pm
Meerut Redux: Sunday 1 October, 1pm-1.15pm

In their first major UK exhibition, Raqs Media Collective unravel worlds, make questions, haunt memorials, and follow the tangled threads of how histories and ways of thinking about emancipation intersect.

Through new and existing work, Twilight Language signals a lighthouse semaphore for all that is lost and found between errant longitudes, infected histories and contagious futures. Touched by the eddies of time in Manchester, new works include a lighthouse that signals the semaphore of twilight language, video portraits of guardians of the city’s history, and the fluttering of the soot-sprinkled Peppered Moth through 3D printed geologic time. The exhibition will give viewers an exceptional opportunity to experience Raqs Media Collective’s ideas, insights and art.
