Year 1 Norwich textile students have a show at Craft Co in Southwold http://www.craftco.co.uk/exhibitions1.html - it’s based on the idea of the decorative ribbon – the show works really well as a whole with some individual pieces that really stand out – it’s on till the end of February. Today has been all about the year 3 interim textile show at NUA – Semiotic presentations around the possible meaning of using pegs whilst hanging work, alongside more the practical issues of budgets, social media and deadlines – all good.
Meanwhile - two ‘slight’ films- the wandering around of Witherspoon’s fractured but fairly obvious narrative in Wild http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2305051/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_5 and Woody Allens latest – Magic in the Moonlight http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2870756/?ref_=nm_flmg_wr_3 Colin Fith’s thoughts on spiritualism whilst strolling in exotic gardens in the South of France. Both ‘nice’ but they won’t worry you too much. And one unpleasant one - Vice http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3480796/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 this appears to be an excuse to show repetitive graphic abuse of women all wrapped up within a layer of science fiction – what was Bruce Willis thinking?
