Stepping into the iirst part at the ‘Hotbed oi Genius', an exhibition set to illuminate the cerebral achievements oi eighteenth century Scotland, now known as the ‘Scottish Enlightenment', is a bit like crossing the threshold Into a chamber oi horrors, or a iuniair ghost train. It's gloomy, it’s narrow, there’s the odd group oi iigures round the V corner. But here the comparison stops. The purpose oi this display is to open not close your eyes.
A cordless, tapeless headset takes ‘ you through the corridors oi ore-Enlightenment High Street Closes to the rooms oi ordered Georgian architecture with a play specially written by Alistair Moiiat, which includes characterised conversations between all the leading men oi the day. Uniortunately, this unusual idea is slightly dimmed by the lack oi relevant visual stimulation in the slickIy-made but sparse installation-the headsets
which magically pick up the correct soundtrack ior each section by inira-red light bulbs above doors and the U.V. light ilooding the enlightened years (and all visitors) may prove to distract irom the subject at hand.
The theatricalities and atmospherics disappear in the second hall at the show. Upstairs a more conventional, academic iormat oi portraits, labels, objects and books begins with the philosopher David Hume and ends with the French Revolution and the American War at Independence, two oi the events which saw the demise oi this golden age.
The exhibition is divided into sections, whcih describe and illustrate the brainwork and talents oi men like Adam Smith, another philospher, James Hutton, geologist, farmer and industrialist and Sir William Hamilton, collector oiart and arbiter oi taste.
