RAW brings together the work of four PhD candidates based at Winchester School of Art to consider the nature of practice within visual arts research. RAW asks if the production and exhibition of artwork becomes repositioned when considered as part of academic enquiry.
Some of the works included reflect the process of working with and through theory where the results may be unfinished and tentative, suggestions rather than conclusions. Other works are more developed and offer up their autonomy as moments of resolution and statements that challenge.
