Vowels are spoken

To be broken

Feelings are intense

Words are trivial
(Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence)
Game and Performance is a multi-media exhibition that probes the orifices of language -- getting sucked in, chewed upon and spat out in the process.... Spptttt!

From office to club, from the demands of the workweek to 'living for the weekend', the works in this exhibition explore the moments in which social behaviour and the need to express oneself to others turn into games - of which the rules remain unknown.  Awkward manoeuvres, ceaseless mouthing, diverted gazes, repetitive utterances and disorientating language are used to communicate. Something, anything.
