Crossword, is a cross-disciplinary investigation into the potential of language; toying with syntax and semantics to demonstrate how words can be utilised to express a meaning.
Language is a medium: something that may be performed, written, spoken, as a means of articulating a deeper meaning. Crossword examines language in the form of 'words' (written and spoken) using the English language. Words can be humorous, instructive, intrusive, weighty and powerful. This exhibition acknowledges however, that language, although significant and critical, is limited and limiting. But, we can use these confinements as an advantage.
In acknowledging it's restrictions the artists in this exhibition edit, manipulate, and override linguistic structures to make language anew.
