In Situ

In Situ: derived from Latin, In Situ refers to a work of art that is made specifically for an exhibition site, taking into account the place where it is set to be installed and displayed. As a result, these works often compliment their surroundings, namely the architecture that frames it. When relocated, these compositions often lose part of their context, elements of their meaning. Remaining in situ is a vital aspect in understanding and interpretation of such artworks. 

In Situ, A Podcast considers this in relation to the artist. How visuals are at the heart of a gorgeous, unfolding process where art is a form of living, vice verse. This podcast meets with contemporary artists to discuss projects at the forefront of their focus----to learn how the architecture of daily life affects the way their work moulds to malleable spaces. Livingness.

In Situ, A Podcast: Episode One 


My name is Shanley McConnell, host of In Situ. I am currently reading Creative Writing at the University of Oxford, having previously completed an MST in English and Creative Writing from the University of Scotland.  

Although I've written short film, prose-memoir, and a couple short stories, I primarily focus on poetry. I was recently awarded second-place in the Sentinel Literary Quarterly Poetry Competition, judged by Terry Jones, followed by a shortlist for the SaveAs International Poetry Competition. 

Coming soon

In Situ, A Podcast: Episode Two 

Anthrometamorphosis: It was an honor to collaborate as a fellow-performer (violinist) with Anya Gleizer, president and founder of The Flute and the Bowl. Anthrometamorphosis responds to the heart of anthropology in its reflection on the transformation, loss and reconciliation that has taken place within the landscape of native Evenkia, Siberia. It explores the performative nature of anthropology as well as the changing choreography of this discipline throughout history. After being awarded the Mansfield-Ruddock Art Prize, Anya performed a Anthrometamorphosis in the main entrance hall of Mansfield College, Oxford, where two of her sculptures are currently displayed.
