“The Word Defiant” is an Art installation created by Les Enfants Terribles at Blickling Estate in Norfolk.
The installation reveals stories of books that have been banned, burned, drowned, superseded, redacted, neglected and those that remain defiant.
Books are survivors and defy the destruction at the hand of man. Books, and the words & images within them, are to be cherished.
The installation runs until the end of October. It’s worth a visit. You will react……. but how?
There are many installations in rooms throughout the house. It wasn’t possible to photograph all of them.
I couldn’t help but wonder if some titles had been strategically placed, and not just strewn around. Surely there was more than randomness, such as, “The Handbook of London Bankers”?
